The D-‐Cycle is a small recycle machine that process and sterilize syringes, discarded pens, sensor switches and pump sets, turning the d-‐trash into small plas:c compounds that will be send to industries that can turn it into building materials like cement, bricks, roof covering, park benches, etc.
Every year people with medial condi:ons use 3 billion syringes to self inject. Government regula:ons require those syringes to be disposed safely with companies responsible for dealing with those materials, although unfortunately the end game for syringes is usually the landﬁll. People with diabetes take a big part of this number as medical trash producers. Test strips, pump set change, CGM sensor switch, insulin boJles, discarded pen needles and syringes are a daily issue that all the diabe:cs have to deal with. Encapsula:on and safe burying not only are expensive, but also they do not reduce the ever-‐ increasing volume of waste. And unlike recycling, neither one generates funds.
Occupying minimum space
A engine crushes the d-‐trash into very small pieces than generates high temperature that fuses all into compound that will be sold to construc:on industries.
It is a machine that can be placed at home or in the drugstores making the disposal easier and making a real logis:cal impact on the recyclability of those materials. The volume of waste would be signiﬁcantly reduced, and the cost of disposal less, because the decontaminated needles and syringes could be treated as noninfec:ous waste. Thus, they would be sold for recycling .
removing the needles in a electrical needle destroyer that decontaminates and rolls the needles into small metal pieces placed in the metal container, that can be sold to metal industries.
