Abstract

The modern state of problem of treatment of pharmaceutical waste in Ukraine was considered. The principles of classification of pharmaceutical waste were presented. The value of quantity of primary and secondary packaging in certain samples of pharmaceutical waste was presented and influence of packaging upon character of process of thermal disposal of pharmaceutical waste was considered. The influence of change of mass of certain samples of pharmaceutical waste during their heating was investigated. The phase transfer of certain pharmaceutical waste during their heating was considered. The dependence of velocity of loss of relative mass of sample on hold-up time in combustion chamber at the temperature of 850 °С was presented. The ignition temperature and self-ignition temperature of certain samples of pharmaceutical waste were identified. The calorific values of number of samples of pharmaceutical waste were defined. The calorific values of number of samples of pharmaceutical waste were defined. The suitability of pharmaceutical waste for disposal by thermal methods was evaluated. A number of thermal characteristics of certain pharmaceutical waste, required for the development of equipment and working conditions of thermal disposal, was identified The character of the process of thermal decomposition of certain pharmaceutical waste at high temperatures of disposal was researched.
