This report summarizes a study that assesses the technical and economic feasibility of pneumatically transporting hospital solid waste. Three hospitals employing pneumatic collection systems were surveyed. Variations in systems design and utilization were investigated and reported upon. Cost information was accumulated and analyzed for each hospital. Operational, performance and environmental analyses were performed for all systems involved. This report should be helpful to hospitals already employing pneumatic systems from the standpoint of optimizing operating procedures and should be further helpful for new installations from a design standpoint.
