Effective management of Biomedical waste is not only critical for health and hygiene of common public and for protection of environment but also a legal compulsion under Environment (Protection) Act. It is practically difficult and economically enviable for a small healthcare unit to have its own facilities for biomedical waste management. Hence, concept of a common facility gained popularity in India.
Envision was one of the pioneers to set up a Common Bio Medical Waste Treatment Facility (CBWTF) in India. CBWTF developed by Envision in Surat on Public Private Partnership (PPP) basis is considered a model facility in India and has been awarded Dubai International Award for best urban practices. Envision has developed few more facilities in India and are being run successfully.
