Mobile Waste and Animal Corpse Incinerators in Wuhan

China shipped 40 “Mobile Waste and Animal Corpse Disposal Modules” to Wuhan. A manufacturer in Nanjing City, Jiangsu Province converted a “mobile medical waste incinerator” to a mobile module that can handle both waste and animal corpses. It could burn 5 tons of waste a day.

Professor Qu Zan from Shanghai Jiao Tong University said that the key to treating medical waste is to kill the virus and the bacteria. The virus cannot live if the module burns the waste at a temperature of 850 Celsius for over two seconds.

According to Xinmin Evening News, a newspaper from Shanghai, each module is of the size of a 20 foot container, with a volume of about 30 cubic meters. It has three parts: a solid waste crushing cabin, an incineration cabin, and a gas purification cabin. It provides mobile disposal solutions for domestic waste, medical waste, and animal corpses.

People, after reading the news, questioned whether it was intended to burn human corpses.

Chinascope did a search on the Internet and found a related report dated 2018 from the Bureau of Animal and Plant Health Inspection and Quarantine, Agricultural Committee, Executive Yuan, Taiwan. The report talked about participating in Japan’s “Epidemic Prevention Drill of Mobile Livestock Rendering Facility.” The mobile modules would crush the cow or pig carcass, sterilize the meat slurry, package them into sealed containers, and then send them to the incinerator.
