Synergy Conversion is a trusted waste management partner in the food industry. Our innovative offering includes a custom waste management strategy that caters to your restaurant’s or facility’s exact recycling and waste needs. Whether you’re a small local diner or a large food production factory, you can count on us to help you optimally manage your waste streams to maximize efficiency, minimize costs, and reduce environmental impact.

Restaurant Waste Management

The most significant waste stream of a restaurant is, unsurprisingly, food waste. This can be further broken down into two categories: pre-point-of-sale waste and post-point-of-sale waste.

Food waste generated before the point of sale typically comes from inventory going bad in the pantry and food being discarded during the preparation process. Plastic packaging and cardboard containers from produce deliveries are other significant sources of restaurant waste. Post-point-of-sale waste includes leftover and takeout packaging.

At Synergy Conversion, we understand that restaurants of any size generate regular and high volumes of waste because of their servicing nature. Waste sorting is also particularly difficult due to the diversity of customers and staff as well as the long servicing hours of these facilities. However, with our help, you can transform your business’s waste management to lower operational costs and positively impact the environment.

Food Production Facility Waste Management

Like restaurants, food production facilities’ number one waste stream is food waste. Any excess product usually has a relatively short shelf life due to its organic nature. Other waste streams from food production facilities include cardboard, mixed plastics, metal, and paper. Unfortunately, most of the waste generated by food and beverage producers worldwide are sent to landfill, which is notably the least preferred disposal option and should be viewed as a last resort.

Synergy Conversion is here to help your facility run as efficiently and sustainably as possible. Our innovative waste management solution will help you maximize efficiency and minimize costs while transforming your facility’s impact on the environment.

Our Innovative Waste Solution

Synergy Conversion’s refuse-derived fuel technology is designed to help you increase your recycling rates and lower operating costs.

Refuse-derived fuel technology is an alternative method to traditional waste management that safely handles all types of waste, from organic waste and mixed plastics to contaminated recyclables. 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 can also be vacuum-packed and safely stored for over 90 days at room temperature, with no risk of odour or bacteria proliferation.

The Converter®MO Series

The Converter®MO 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. Smaller than a typical compactor, it can process restaurant and food production waste in just 30 minutes, eliminating the rodent and leakage issues of current waste disposal bins.

Our Converter®MO machines eliminate the need for waste segregation and allow for waste treatment onsite without using chemicals, combustion, or microwaves. The process is also emission- and odour-free, making it ideal for use within restaurants and food production facilities.

The Converter®MO series comes in eight different size models, with process powers ranging from 4-6kg per hour to 500-600kg per hour and volumes ranging from 25 to 5000 litres. 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®MO model.
