Our Refuse-Derived Fuel Technology

Synergy Conversion is an expert provider of refuse-derived fuel technology, an alternative method to traditional waste management that reduces overall operating costs while positively impacting the environment.

Using a completely mechanical process, refuse-derived fuel technology captures the energy in ‘last kilo’ waste, such as mixed plastics, paper, glass, and biohazardous materials, and turns it into refuse-derived fuel (RDF), a renewable energy source that can replace fossil fuels. It can also be used as bedding or filler for non-structural concrete.

RDF is inert, sterile and odourless. 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 also removes the need to refrigerate waste as it can be safely stored for over 90 days at room temperature, with no risk of odour or bacteria proliferation when vacuum packed.

Advantages of Refuse-Derived Fuel Technology

Adding RDF efforts into the waste management strategy of your veterinary practice will ensure greater recycling of the generated trash in the facility, lower waste management costs, and improve your environmental impact.

Harnessing RDF technology can be a great cost-saver for any veterinary practice. 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. 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 Benefits of Using RDF include:

  • 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

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 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 local veterinary clinics that may not have enough floor space for a Converter® onsite. 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 clinic ready to collect sharps waste, biohazardous waste, plastics, or any other forms of waste efficiently and professionally.
