Notable Trends

• Increasing demand for renewable cleaning. The main aim is to minimize the damage to the environment, thus leading to improving the quality of performance and cutting costs. Consequently, renewable or green cleaning has entered the cleaning industry. Water cleaning, high-flow fluid extraction, and steam vapor technology are the green cleaning processes that are used in industry.

• Furthermore, improving health and safety inside an industrial building reduces storage, purchase, and disposal costs and simplifies the use and cleaning operations are some of the various advantages of renewable cleaning.

Market Challenges

• Huge capital investment to discard biomedical waste challenges the waste management market growth. This is because of the biomedical waste discharged from the healthcare industry, which includes infectious, toxic, and radioactive materials and sharp hypodermic needles, knives, and scalpels.

• Such biomedical wastes are hazardous and toxic parts of waste. Furthermore, the treatment process for this kind of waste is very difficult as it requires high capital investment, a high-quality waste treatment unit, and a management facility, along with recruiting a skilled workforce.
