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 waste, medications, and controlled substances. It is safe, affordable, convenient and sustainable.

Using a completely mechanical process, refuse-derived fuel technology captures the energy in non-recyclable waste, such as mixed plastics, paper, glass, and biohazardous materials, 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.

Other Advantages of Using RDF include the following:

  • No processing emissions
  • Waste management GHG reduction by 50%
  • No off-gassing
  • No landfill leaching
  • No bacteria or virus
  • Decreased volume of waste
  • Reduced greenhouse gas emission
