Introducing Refuse-Derived Fuel Technology

Synergy Conversion is an expert provider of refuse-derived fuel technology, an alternative method to traditional waste management that safely handles all types of waste, including sharps, biohazardous, pharmaceutical, and pathological waste. It is safe, affordable, convenient and sustainable.

Using a completely mechanical process, refuse-derived fuel technology captures the energy in non-recyclable waste and turns it into a renewable energy source known as refuse-derived fuel (RDF).

RDF is an inert, sterile and odourless energy replacement for fossil fuels. It is much lighter and smaller than pre-treated and unsorted waste because the treatment process can reduce the weight by 50% and the volume by 80%. It removes the need to refrigerate waste and saves precious space as it can be safely stored for over 90 days at room temperature, with no risk of odour or bacteria proliferation when vacuum-packed.

Why Use Refuse-Derived Fuel Technology

Adding RDF efforts to the waste management strategy of your long-term care facility will ensure greater recycling of any generated waste, lower waste management costs, and improve your environmental impact.

Harnessing RDF technology can be a great cost-saver for any facility. Unlike traditional recycling methods, our RDF technology can process unsorted mixed waste in varied sizes and moisture content, removing the need to sort generated waste consistently. It also eliminates the use of large waste storage systems as our onsite RDF machines can instantly convert and reduce the size of your waste by 50% in just 30 minutes.

Our Onsite RDF Technology Solution: The Converter®H Series

The Converter®H model series from Synergy Conversion brings refuse-derived technology right to your doorstep. This series is a modular, plug-and-play installation that is easy to set up and operate in your facility.

The Converter®H series does not need a special licence for operation as it is designed to treat waste without using 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 school, please get in touch with our team to learn more about the specifications of each Converter®H model.

Offsite Waste Management Service

We also offer offsite waste treatment services to research laboratories that may prefer to have their waste treated elsewhere.

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.

Our team is fully trained to handle 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 lab ready to collect sharps waste, biohazardous waste, plastics, or any other forms of waste efficiently and professionally.
