Optimal Solutions to Reduce Medical Waste

Chen-Lin Lee and Jin-Cherng Chen
Abstract—Medical waste (MW), from its creation to its final treatment, is currently a topic of great concern to society. Pollution created by MW not only has an adverse effect on human health but also harms the environment. This study developed a basic model premised on sustainable operation and environmental protection. This model provides concrete data for discussion concerning the creation and sources of MW and its harm to the environment. The government must impose fixed-rate “pollution taxes” on polluters to achieve justice. The amount of pollution emitted from various sources was calculated by using mathematical models and contingency plans were implemented for pollution control and pollution reduction to derive methods that can effectively reduce and inhibit pollution. The mathematical models can hopefully satisfy manufacturers, consumers, and the government, enabling the health care industry to achieve sustainable operation and optimized environmental protection.

Index Terms—Medical waste (MW), environment, pollution.
