Feedstocks and processing
If you have non-recyclable industrial by-products such as paper, plastic films, label matrix, nonwovens, or agricultural feedstocks or residues, we may be able to integrate these resources into the energy chain as feedstock for our renewable fuel manufacturing process. In addition to helping our customers operate in a more environmentally sustainable manner, we may be able to process your material for less than you are currently paying to dispose of it in a landfill. Keeping these materials out of the landfill significantly reduces greenhouse gases (GHGs) and helps manufacturers become landfill-free.
What Can Be Processed?
All feedstock streams are sampled and tested prior to approval for use as a feedstock for our fuel. Potential raw materials are tested for energy content, fiber content, non-combustible minerals, and other trace materials such as chlorine, mercury, and sulfur prior to being approved for conversion into fuel pellets. Raw materials currently being utilized in our fuel pellets include pre-consumer non-recyclable materials industrial waste by-products such as:
- Paper, including non-recyclable waste
- Packaging materials and flexible films
- Pressure sensitive labels
- Corrugated containers
- Poly-laminated films
- Process trim
- Paper mill sludge
- Pulper rejects
- Agricultural residues such as oat hulls
No post-consumer or municipal solid waste is used in the Convergen pellet making process.
