Onsite Waste Management Service: Refuse-Derived Fuel Technology

At Synergy Conversion, we specialize in refuse-derived fuel technology, an alternative method to traditional waste management that can reduce costs while positively impacting the environment.

Refuse-derived fuel technology converts’ last kilo’ wastes that cannot be sorted and/or recycled into an inert, sterile and odourless renewable energy source known as refuse-derived fuel (RDF).

Eco-Friendly End Product: Refuse-Derived Fuel

RDF is an energy source produced from commercial and domestic waste, such as plastics, biohazardous waste, and biodegradable materials. It can be used as an alternative fuel source to fossil fuels or as bedding or filler for non-structural concrete.

In comparison to pre-treated and unsorted waste, RDF is entirely unrecognizable, odourless, and sterile. It is much lighter and smaller as the treatment process can reduce the weight by 50% and the volume by 80%. When vacuum-packed, RDF can be safely stored for over 90 days at room temperature with no risk of odour or bacteria proliferation.

Harnessing RDF technology for energy production has a tremendous positive impact on the environment. Unlike traditional recycling methods, the process of creating RDF can involve a wide range of materials, including non-recyclable waste that is often sent to landfills or incinerated. Adding RDF efforts to your hospital’s waste management strategy will ensure greater recycling of the generated trash in the facility, lower operation costs, and improve efficiency and environmental impact.

Our Onsite RDF Technology Solution: The Converter®H Series

The Converter®H model series from Synergy Conversion brings refuse-derived technology to any hospital facility. This series is a modular, plug-and-play installation that is easy to set up and operate onsite. Using a completely mechanical process, the Converter®H is able to crush, sterilize, and treat all forms of medical waste in just 30 minutes.

The Converter®H series is risk-free and easy to use. It does not need a special licence for operation as it is designed to treat waste without the use of hazardous chemicals, microwaves, or combustion. It is also emission-free, with no risk of releasing toxic pollutants or contaminants into the atmosphere.

The Converter®H comes in eight different size models. The smallest model, Converter®H25, has a treatment chamber volume of 25 litres and can process 4 to 6kg of waste per hour, while the largest model, Converter®H5000, has a treatment chamber volume of 5000 litres and can process 500 to 600kg of hospital waste per hour. To determine which model is best for your facility, please get in touch with our team to learn more about the specifications of each Converter®H model.

Offsite Waste Management Service

Synergy Conversion also offers offsite waste treatment services to hospitals. Our in-house treatment plants receive, operate and transform mixed waste within a single plant in a clean and odourless environment. Incoming waste may be any unsorted and mixed waste variable in size and moisture content, including biological hazardous waste. Like our onsite Converter®, the final product produced is RDF and can be reused as an energy source.

Our team is fully trained to handle medical waste to protect you and our planet from toxins and pollutants. At the time of your scheduled pick-up appointment, you can expect our team to arrive at your hospital ready to collect sharps waste, biohazardous waste, plastics, or any other forms of waste efficiently and professionally.
