Description of Services:Elga, LLC management only permitted the CHWMEG reviewers to see and ask about the treatment facilities and processes for the destruction of pharmaceutical waste. Elga, LLC uses the pyrolysis process to destroy all physical compositions of pharmaceutical waste. The facility is permitted to treat all types of pharmaceutical waste, including drugs containing narcotics (license currently being renewed) and controlled pharmaceuticals, so the facility does not use a screening process to determine which waste to accept. Elga, LLC owns a fleet of trucks which are used to pick up waste from the customers. The pharmaceutical-containing containers are then stacked and stored in the building containing the pyrolysis plants to await destruction. Raw material (pharmaceutical waste) is loaded into a container of heat-resistant material (retort). The retort is placed above the oven. Raw material is heated by heat transfer through the retort walls and thermally decomposed (pyrolysis) forming a mixture of steam and gas and carbon residue (ash).
