A Secure Solution for Pharmaceutical Waste

At Synergy Conversion, we focus on driving safety and security when working with pharmaceutical facilities to manage their sensitive waste streams. From our tamper-proof pharmaceutical waste collection system to refuse-derived technology, we are a proud provider of cost-effective and environmentally-friendly drug disposal solutions for controlled and non-hazardous medications.

Our Innovative Pharmaceutical Waste Collection System

Our pharmaceutical waste collection system mitigates unnecessary risks in the containment, disposal, and transport of unwanted medications. Our containers are designed with an in-built locking system to prevent tampering, theft, and unauthorized access to discarded pharmaceuticals onsite and during transit. They also feature a liquid seal around the lid to eliminate the risk of leakage during transport.

Our collection of pharmaceutical waste containers comes in different sizes to cater to the needs of various medical environments. Our larger containers are suited for high-volume areas such as drug dispensary areas in a pharmacy, or larger facilities that may dispose of bulk expired medications.

Our Solution For Controlled Substances

Hazardous pharmaceutical and medication waste require specialized containment and disposal methods to ensure compliance with stringent government requirements. Synergy Conversion has developed a cost-effective and eco-friendly system so your facility can handle all hazardous waste streams safely and compliantly.

Synergy Conversion is an expert provider of refuse-derived fuel technology, an alternative method to traditional waste management that makes medication and hazardous waste destruction safe, affordable, convenient, and sustainable.

Using a completely mechanical process, refuse-derived fuel technology captures the energy in non-recyclable waste, including medications, controlled substances, biohazardous waste, glass, plastics, and more, 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

RDF technology is an environmentally safe drug disposal solution for controlled and non-controlled substances. Adding RDF efforts to the waste management strategy of your pharmaceutical facility will ensure greater recycling of the generated waste in the facility, lower waste management costs, and improve your environmental impact.

Harnessing RDF technology can be a great cost-saver for any institution. 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 need for 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

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.

Offsite Waste Management Service

Synergy Conversion also offers offsite waste treatment services to pharmacies that may prefer to have their waste treated elsewhere.

Our in-house treatment plants receive, operate and transform controlled 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.
