An urgent need exists for a medical waste incinerator at the little hospital on Christmas Island. We need to purchase materials, ship them from Honolulu and send an expert to oversee construction. The type being considered is the Montfort incinerator, (https://www.mw-incinerator.info) built of special fire bricks, which can be started with coconut shells, and once up to operating temperature (800 Celsius), the medical waste itself becomes the fuel to drive the incinerator process.
If anyone out there has experience with this type of incinerator, please let us know what you think. The design objective, we are told, is for a cheap but effective incinerator which can be built in almost any developing country with materials readily available, and not requiring liquid gas or electricity to operate.
