Molded pulp packaging can be used in the clinical arena. Have you ever wondered how containers are cleaned in hospitals and medical offices? Certainly autoclaves are utilized to rid of bacteria on medical devices, but how about the plastic containers you get in the hospital? The plastic containers can also be put into the autoclave. This is time consuming and labor intensive cleaning and sterilizing the containers before they meet their next patient. Cost effectiveness is certainly a consideration after calculating labor, materials, as well as brick and mortar overhead, corporations are finding it all adds up.
So What’s Next?
Across North America and actually even worldwide, there’s an environmental consciousness that is taking over many schools of thought. How can we as individuals and entire companies help save our planet. With todays technology, we are finding that not only recycled fibers but virgin fibers from plants that have been harvested for their own reason can be turned into molded pulp containers. Whether it’s corrugated tree fiber, wheat, straw, corn, bamboo, sugarcane and even eucalyptus, to name a few, they can all be molded into a specific shape to suit the need for the specific application. A container that can be used in the clinical setting that is a single-use, biodegradable, recyclable and even in some cases, compostable is an answer that could possibly solve a high hygiene question for in our hospitals.
