Which feminine hygiene waste treatment products are right for your facilities?

Genesis Biosciences recognises that their customers need to meet the demands of their clients in different ways and that a “one fits all” product is not the solution.

That’s why our feminine hygiene waste treatment products collection, the Biosan Series, consists of 3 separate and highly-effective cleaning products that work to eradicate harmful microorganisms like bacteria in sanitary waste.

Biosan Series

The Biosan series range is the result of many years of continuous development of our feminine hygiene waste treatment products.

This range is based on volatile plant extracts that are active throughout the bin, controlling micro-organisms and suppressing odours at source.

Why treat the sanitary waste associated with feminine hygiene?

Flushing sanitary waste down the toilet can cause drain blockages and also create problems for waste water treatment plants.

That’s why feminine hygiene bins (otherwise known as sanitary waste units) can be found in most public women’s bathrooms. These bins are collected and taken to a central depot regularly, where they are cleaned and brought back to their original locations.

This method isn’t just unneccesarily expensive but the lack of proper cleaning is potentially dangerous to its users – sanitary waste bins can be a breeding ground for high-risk infectious micro-organisms, including Salmonella, E.coli, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C.
