In 2014, Sisili Projects Consortium established Sisili Hanaro Encare as a pilot project in the Colombo East Base Hospital, as a tripartite agreement with the Ministry of Health and the Central Environmental Authority of Sri Lanka. The objective of this project was to establish a two (02) MT/day centralized waste management facility that would responsibly dispose clinical waste generated in public and private healthcare sectors in the Western, Central and Southern provinces of the country. Upon the success of the pilot project, a state-of-the-art, commercial facility in Kerawalapitiya was established in August 2019 with an investment of US$ 5.2 million. Soon afterwards, we also began working with other waste streams including industrial waste, chemical waste, sludge, and wastewater from various industries ranging from apparel, tanning, and rubber to pharmaceuticals.
Sisili Hanaro Encare is thus a market pioneer and leader in clinical waste management in Sri Lanka, where our services are much needed. Our philosophy also extends beyond waste management in that we consider us as part of a circular system where all material from our day-to-day lives can be reused in various processing cycles.
We are also able to provide comprehensive operational and maintenance models according to the comfort levels of clients. We often work with clients to complete operations with maintenance for a certain time period, giving them time to develop their core business. Moreover, Encare will give clients access to additional consultancy services, complete turnkey solutions via our group engineering and construction companies in order further develop the holistic solution clients require.
Sisili Hanaro Encare is a pioneer in services in clinical waste management and responsible disposal of other types of waste, leaving a positive environmental impact.
