Biomedical waste in solid form is noticed by everybody but hospitals also generate liquid waste daily in huge quantity. For an example a 150 bedded hospital generating 15/20 thousand liters of liquid biomedical waste from all the departments i.e. OT to canteen, every where the water using is rolling down to a main drain of the hospital finally. This water is a mixed solution of all potential toxic substances discharged by various departments, including the residential area of the hospital, Nurses quarters, canteen etc all.
