A breath of fresh air: Sustainable design meets medical innovation with the SID-CAN

The healthcare sector plays a vital role in our well-being, but its contribution often comes with a hidden environmental cost. Waste anaesthetic agents, used in surgical procedures, are potent greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere. While essential for patient care, these agents contribute to climate change and air quality issues.

Here at Hymid, we're passionate about innovation, but we believe it shouldn't come at the expense of the environment. That's why we were thrilled to partner with SageTech Medical Ltd. (www.sagetechmedical.com) on their ground-breaking SID-Solutions system – a revolutionary approach to capturing and recycling waste anaesthetic gases.

This post offers a glimpse into this award-winning collaboration, but to truly appreciate the ingenuity of the SID-Solutions system, we highly encourage you to click here to read more about it on our dedicated web page.

The Challenge: A Hidden Footprint in Healthcare

Did you know that the healthcare sector is a significant contributor to greenhouse gas emissions? One often-overlooked culprit is waste anaesthetic agents used during surgery. These potent gases are released into the atmosphere, impacting climate change and air quality.

SageTech Medical are a company dedicated to sustainable solutions in healthcare. They envisioned the SID-Solutions system, featuring the SID-Can capture canister – developed in collaboration with Team Hymid, to address this environmental concern.

Bridging the Gap Between Vision and Reality: The Hymid Difference

SageTech's vision for the SID-Solutions system was brilliant but translating it into a commercially viable product required a partner with Design for Manufacturability (DfM) expertise. This is where Hymid's extensive experience came into play.

A Partnership Recognized: The Sustainability Award

The Hymid-SageTech partnership's groundbreaking contribution to sustainability in healthcare was recognized with the Sustainability Award at the Med-Tech Innovation Awards 2023. This national recognition helped set SageTech’s commercial success in place and confirmed Hymid as an advanced plastics manufacturer.
