The recent COVID-19 pandemic, which has hit the world, is third in the last two decades. The safety and precaution measures have led to the generation of a colossal pile of biomedical waste, including plastic waste, due to the usage of personal protective equipment kits and safety equipment that is not easily manageable. The environment and health and safety concerns for humans require biomedical waste to be treated with an outstanding treatment process that can help humanity manage it by adhering to strict environmental norms prescribed. The plasma gasification technology is the most beneficial and efficient technology for treating biomedical waste. The byproducts generated can be utilized further as valuable inputs in other industries, thus strengthening the circular economy concept. In this research paper, the applicability of plasma gasification for the treatment of biomedical waste in the present scenario has been reviewed. The feasibility and applicability of the technology in handling biomedical waste have been reviewed via various research articles in this study. Also, further steps have been suggested for the Indian scenario to make this technology commercially viable in the long run.
