Latis Scientific Case Study
Latis Scientific are the market leading provider of laboratory services in the water hygiene sector proving essential services across a range of sectors such as hospitals, schools, retail and leisure.
With their state of the art facilities based in London, they form part of a UK Laboratory division providing services across the contaminated land sector in addition to strong links with other Suez Group Laboratories in Spain, LabAqua.
Following the loss of capacity for the disposal of their infectious clinical waste, and with an emergency service provider driving higher costs and sporadic service delivery,; they had no option but to look at where their services could be guaranteed. Fundamentally, they needed guaranteed on-going capacity, full chain of custody of the disposal of this hazardous waste, capping of rising costs and a service provider that they could rely on.
In terms of the sector of operation, Latis Scientific’s waste is only suitable for treatment at a high temperature incinerator and finding such a partner to provide this service was proving almost impossible.
THE ALBUS ENVIRONMENTAL APPROACH
Following the site inspection, it was also recommended that a further benefit to the service would be the provision of segregation support to ensure full compliance through correct packaging and transportation in a cradle to grave process.
Complimentary completion of an annual ‘large producers’ pre-waste acceptance audit.
A tailored service to encompass multiple weekly collections with dedicated vehicles and timeslots and wherever possible the same operative for a consistent and unrivalled collection service.
Dedicated expert advice from an Account Manager to support the continuous improvement of waste segregation.
Education to reduce disposal by association to eliminate unnecessary costs within their infectious waste streams.
