Pioneering the future of clinical waste

The NHS has committed to reducing its carbon footprint by 80% by 2040 (Greener NHS Plan - Pathway NetZero). Curo can convert clinical waste to general waste, giving significant cost savings, as well as the option to then turn waste into floc for energy or recyclable materials - both of which can generate income for the Trust or Health Board and create a circular economy.

*Averages taken from Trust specific detail of 2 DGH and 2 Acute Trusts.


Average CO2 saving of 816.92Kg per bed*


Average revenue saving of £310.84 per bed*
