In Palestine Medical waste is one of the most important environmental problems that are facing Palestinian national authority (PNA) in the last few years.
The disposal of garbage and medical waste is a problem that continues to grow with the development of industrialized nations and the growth of population. Since the beginning of the people have needed to find a way of disposing of the trash. In 18th century England and France, carters were paid by individuals to carry trash and discard it on the outskirts of town. Disposal in open pits became routine and Benjamin Franklin initiated the first municipal cleaning program in Philadelphia in 1757. Since then we have come a long way and have developed types of waste that cannot simply be dumped into a hole.
The purpose of this study was first, to study the construction of incinerator integrated with distillation water for Nablus city. Second, increase awareness about Mechanical and thermal design.
The results of the study reveal that:
1. The total Quantities product from Nablus hospitals approximately 810Kg/day.
2. There is no heat recovery system attached with medical incinerators in Palestine.
3. The study also shows that the heat product from the medical incinerator can be used to produce distillate water at flow rate of 900kg/hr
