What is Implant Recycling?

Implant recycling refers to the process of collecting, processing, and recycling medical implants. Implants, such as dental, pacemakers, defibrillators, orthopedic devices, and prosthetic joints, are often made of durable materials like gold, palladium, platinum, titanium, cobalt, stainless steel, or various alloys.

The recycling process typically involves the following steps:

Collection: Implants are collected from crematories. Strict protocols are followed to ensure the safe and ethical collection of implants.
Sterilization: Implants that meet the necessary criteria undergo a thorough sterilization process to eliminate any potential contaminants. This typically involves cleaning, disinfection, and sterilization techniques approved byregulatory authorities.
Implant recycling programs can provide a cost-effective and environmentally friendly solution by reducing medical waste and extending the life cycle of medical implants. Proper ethical and safety guidelines must be followed to ensure the quality andsafety of recycled implants.
For more than 100 years, metals have been implanted in the human body to repair or replace joints or dental, and they have dramatically improved the lives of those patients. However, when these recipients deceased, their surgical and dental implants are buried in cemeteries or landfills, generating hundreds of tons of hazardous waste every year. Fortunately, many crematory operators have begun pursuing an alternate strategy. After separating the post-cremation metals from the ashes and collecting them in bins, they can ship the metal to an implant recycling company free of charge.
