All human endeavors result in garbage. We are all aware that this waste could be toxic and needs to be disposed of properly. Water, soil, and air are polluted by industrial waste, sewage, and agricultural waste. Both humans and the environment may be at risk from it. Similar to this, hospitals and other healthcare institutions produce large amounts of garbage that might expose people to illnesses, particularly HIV, Hepatitis B & C, and Tetanus. India produces over three million tonnes of medical waste annually, and that volume is anticipated to increase by 8% every year. We have a young leader who is always attempting to tackle this issue.
Today we are in a conversation with Mr. Bipin Bihari Sarangi, a young leader who is constantly working to address the problem of biomedical waste.
Mr. Bipin Bihari Sarangi is currently the Director of Mediaid Marketing Services Private Limited. With this, he has served as the Director of Utkal Envirocare Solution Private Limited and Max Tech Equipments & Consultants Private Limited. He received his BTech from Delhi Engineering College, where he graduated in 1995. He then completed a six-month course in the management of biomedical waste. After researching the new regulations, he planned to enter the Bio-Medical Waste Management industry in 1998.
Through internal technological development, Mediaid has been expanding with coordinated planning and an objective vision of a clean, green, and healthy environment. The group’s fundamental tenet—that biomedical waste must be appropriately disposed of in order to achieve the goal—is supported by strong multidisciplinary task forces led by prominent engineers and managed by seasoned professionals. Private Indian Company Mediaid, which has been around since 2005, focuses on biomedical waste management systems. The management of all infectious and non-infectious biomedical waste produced by healthcare facilities is provided by Mediaid in an effective, cost-effective, and secure manner.
The practical use of the most recent mechanical and electronic technology has given us knowledge and skill. Mediaid has now been recognized as one of the industry leaders in biomedical waste management thanks to extensive research and development. For the proper disposal of various kinds of biological waste, Mediaid has a wide variety of standardized solutions. From waste source segregation through final disposal and treatment, Medi Aid provides solutions.
He says that the two services provided by this brand—mechanized laundry service and medical waste management—are the most crucial aspects of the hospital industry. He introduced the first automated laundry services in this region of Odisha in 2010. He feels that hospitals need to handle their trash properly because viral diseases can emerge. Therefore, they must be disposed of in a proper, scientific way. They have three plants at Sundergarh, Berhampur, and Cuttack.
They are accompanied by 28 vans that transport waste every day from all hospitals to the plant site. According to the Red, Yellow, and Blue pollution color code requirements, the transportation vans contain several disposal bins. The collected objects must be disposed of as soon as possible to prevent the spread of any virus illnesses caused by the garbage.
Waste management, in Mr. Sarangi’s opinion, has a bright future in Odisha. For the people, it has been a secure position. The only activity that we can observe is seasonally occurring biomedical waste. Therefore, we must actively and securely work.
Finally, he adds that while providing trash management services is not an easy profession, once you figure out how it works, you may succeed. People should be aware of how to use waste to generate income so they can develop. Therefore, young entrepreneurs should think carefully before entering this industry. They should not regard this as a garbage management job and should instead appreciate their trade.
