European Journal of Molecular & Clinical Medicine, 2022, Volume 9, Issue 7, Pages 5828-5834

Aims & Objectives: COVID-19 clinical waste management has become a concern with increasing number of medical practitioners in India. Being health care professionals, one should be aware regarding safe disposal of biomedical waste and recycling of the materials to minimize biohazards to the environment. The aim of the present study was to assess awareness regarding biomedical waste management among medical practitioners.
Materials & Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted among medial practitioners belonging from all medical colleges and private practitioners in Khorda district, Odisha (India) from February 2022 to April 2022. A total of 100 doctors (58 males and 42 females) participated in the study, which was conducted in two phases. A form was distributed to assess the attention of COVID-19 clinical waste management and information of effective utilisation of materials, and picked up knowledge was examined on a 5-point unipolar scale in percentages to assess the relative awareness relating to these 2 totally different categorizes.  The applied math Package for Social Sciences was accustomed analyzed collected data.

Mitigating carbon emission in inventory has become an important issue for companies. Nowadays, companies are looking for solutions to reduce the carbon emission due to carbon policies imposed by various regulatory bodies. Not only for regulations, ISO certification, business competitive and customer satisfaction also encourage organizations to adopt green practices in their supply chain. In this paper, we develop a new sustainable inventory model considering carbon emission function which includes different sources of pollution. A mathematical model is to determine the optimal order quantity and total cost of this system. A numerical example is illustrated to present the proposed model

Information and telecommunications technology (ICT) and systematic networking has pierced nearly every aspect of modern life. It is positively affecting human life even in the most remote areas of the developing countries. The rapid growth in Information and telecommunications technology has led to an improvement in the capacity of computers. But the products lifetime is decreasing the waste electrical and electronic equipment (e-waste) is increase in the large quantity in annually. Information and telecommunications technology development in most developing countries, particularly in Africa, depends more on secondhand or refurbished EEEs most of which are imported without confirmatory testing for functionality. So as a result, large quantities of e-waste are presently being managed in these countries. The challenges facing the developing countries in e-waste management include: an absence of infrastructure for appropriate waste management, an absence of legislation dealing specifically with e-waste, an absence of any framework for end-of-life (EoL) product take-back or implementation of extended producer responsibility (EPR).

In order to balance economic and environmental strategies through the reconciliation of end of life or end of use product value, reverse logistics and product recovery management are an important concept. Valuable components and materials in the used returned products can produce value in monetary forms when retrieved efficiently. This study's primary purpose is to explore and develop a model that recovers the economic value of end of life or end of use product returns and the sorting policy to optimize demand and maximize income over time. The model proposed focuses on reverse logistics recovery options, i.e., refurbish, remanufacture, recycling, and disposal, combining all possible means of return quality standards. A range of decisions on trade-off management systems is evaluated to maximize the revenue created by collecting used products by reverse logistics services using restoration, remanufacturing, and recycling options. The findings showed the process of acquiring less of the acquisition quantity at a minimum overall cost with the sorting policy. Finally, the model offers various potential scenarios for maximizing the total cost recovery options of end of life or end of use products.
