Waste Management -OMPECO

For the purpose of simplification of procedures for the management of medical/municipal waste OMPECO proposes an advanced, patented technology: the Converter. The machinery Converter are created to treat solids or semi-solids materials, at high temperatures (up to 151 ° C) and, when needed, sterilized using the known method to “moist heat”. The special procedure adopted allows the use of water in liquid form without using pressure.

The waste permanency in landfill for long periods means: high operating costs if you worry about the environmental impact of the landfill air pollution / emissions high in methane and carbon dioxide (greenhouse gas very active) groundwater contamination saturation of landfills → loss of land → uncomfortable odour → discomfort in the neighbourhood.

The Converter is designed to treat a wide range of materials such as manure, animal, waste from commercial areas, waste generated on board boats, canteen waste, residue oil, medical waste and much more. The OMPECO also offers other solutions to its customers such as the ability to offer a complete service. This tool comes with a view of Public Administrations and private clinics and hospitals increasingly reluctant to large investments, but increasingly attentive to ecofriendly and reducing emissions.

The OMPECO fact guarantees a managed independently and eliminating the responsibility of the Directorate about the infectious waste product; inside the hospital. This management allows not only a reduction in disposal costs and transportation, guaranteed by reducing weight and volume of technology Converter; but above all a safe and controlled management of waste that leaves the hospital walls once treated and sterilized.

A company whose roots date back to 1973 with over 40 years experience in customer management and study of ad hoc solutions; with a young and dynamic staff. OMPECO Ltd. today contains within it all the know-how necessary for the production and sale of technology which has now made it his business philosophy: the Converter®.


The Converter is designed to sterilise or pasteurise with moist heat at a temperature of 151 Deg C (110 Deg C for pasteurisation) that is exclusively achieved by producing heat with friction.

The machine scope is to process waste: to sterilise for the H (infectious waste) series or to pasteurize for the NV (Naval) , AV (aviation-catering) and MO (Municipal) series, through a fully automatic cycle, always guaranteeing sterilised (or pasteurised according to the model), safe, dry, stable, shredded and odourless when cold result material.

For remote areas, OMPECO also have their Mobile Unit range – CONVERTER MOB

The machine is not designed to process chemical, explosive, gas and radioactive substances.

Metal, glass and aggregates can be processed by the Converter but only in small quantities.

Average 80% volume and 30% weight reductions are obtained with 30% humidity (equal to the processed material humidity).

The Converter waste processing capacity varies according to the type of input waste:

* Hospital waste: between 25 and 40 kg/hour

* Organic waste: between 40 and 60 kg/hour

* Solid urban waste: between 30 and 80 kg/hour
