Companies from Europe and USA have been dumping their toxic waste in Africa for many years. The governments in the region are now banning this practice as a result of their awareness about growing health concerns. In Middle East a large percentage of hazardous waste is produced from petroleum products and from frequent wars including shellings, casings and other type of war remains. Hence, the demand for hazardous waste handling automation is estimated to increase rapidly in this region in the coming years.
Hazardous waste management is the collection, disposal and treatment of harmful materials. If improperly handled, it can cause substantial harm to human health and the environment. These include waste materials generated on a day today basis by people, power plants, and manufacturing companies.
Some of these wastes can be handled manually while some may require expertise and automation solutions to minimize human contact with the waste. Use of such automation solutions for handling waste also improves the process efficiency and reduces the reliability on manual intervention. Thus, concerns about proper handling of these harmful substances can be eliminated.
Different products used in hazardous waste handling automation include cranes, manipulator arms and size reduction arms. Some of the major vendors of these products are Par Systems, Konecranes, DX Engineering, Pallmann Maschinenfabrik GmbH & Co. KG, A.C.E, Inc.
