The morphological composition of waste of medical institutions in Ukraine, which could potentially be sent on thermal disposal, was analyzed. Composition and technical characteristics of residues after the thermal disposal of medical waste’s for different initial morphological compositions were identified, notably for wastes with different content of polymeric materials and separately for pharmaceutical waste as a subgroup of medical waste. There was investigated heavy metals’ leaching from the received bottom ash. The hazards degree of a solid residue was determined. Possible methods for treatment of residues after waste’s thermal disposal, depending on its composition and technical characteristics, were considered. On the basis of received data and the experience of treatment of residues after thermal disposal of other wastes there were made recommendations for treatment of residue after the disposal of medical waste of typical composition.
