This paper presents a thermodynamic analysis of the plasma processing of Biomedical Waste (BMW). It is shown that the final products do not contain toxic substances. From the organic mass of BMW synthesis gas was basically produced, and mineral part consists mainly of calcium oxide and contains no carbon. Linear DC plasma torch of 30 kW nominal power was created. From the obtained current-voltage characteristics of the plasma torch parameters of its stable operation are defined. According to the results of experimental studies modes of the plasma furnace chamber are identified, the analysis of the exhaust gases is prepared, samples of the condensed products are selected in the chamber and their chemical composition is determined. The plasma processing of BMW can be used in medical, pharmaceutical and biomedical institutions. The obtained synthesis gas can be used as fuel for power generators based on a new generation of solid oxide fuel cells.
