Waste streams we work with

Our versatile technology can be applied to various waste types

Mixed residual waste

Mixed solid waste (MSW) or mixed residual waste (MRW) is the most common and prevalent form of discarded material. It is non-hazardous by nature and is typically produced from the following areas:

  • Trade waste
  • Commercial waste
  • Domestic waste
  • Retail
  • Facilities
  • Entertainment
non clinical ofensive waste1

Offensive washroom waste

The non-clinical offensive waste stream includes sanitary products, nappies, tissues, and paper towels that are high in moisture, resulting in a heavy, ammonia-rich, and odorous waste. Sources include:

  • Facilities
  • Entertainment
  • Education
  • Care facilities
  • Retail
De-packaged waste AD rejects

De-packaged waste

De-packaged waste or AD rejects consist of plastics, cardboard, and other food packaging materials mixed with organic residue. These waste types have high moisture content and a significant organic fraction. This waste type is typically found in:

  • Anaerobic Digestion (AD) plants

organic fines

Organic fines

Mixed residue from the mechanical treatment derived from the separation of municipal solid waste and sewage sludge from municipal wastewater treatment plants, currently processed for disposal as wastes. Typically sub 60mm size fraction. Sources:

  • Municipal waste
  • Waste Water Treatment
organic waste


Pure organic waste is typically the excess waste created from the following areas:

Industrial processes

  • Food production
  • Industrial processing
  • Windrow composting
  • Agriculture biproducts
  • Market spoils
  • Fish processing
