Our history begins in 1996, where our founders shared one simple goal: to design, build and maintain waste recovery and recycling projects around the world. Right from the start Waste Treatment Technologies (WTT) was characterized by innovative designs and functionality. In 2007 the development of anaerobic digestion opened a realm of possibilities for WTT. During this time, WTT closed various large contracts as a turnkey supplier of aerobic and anaerobic technologies. In 2013 WTT was acquired by Convent Capital, a long-term Dutch investor that focuses on buying and improving sustainable businesses. Over the next few years, they worked closely together to focus their strategy on services, operational excellence and project sales. In 2014 WTT landed its first Canadian project in cooperation with Orgaworld (later named Renewi). Together they were awarded a contract to Design Build and Operate an organic waste facility for the City of Surrey, British Columbia. This became the first closed-loop organic waste facility in Surrey, a milestone for the waste industry and working towards a sustainable future for all. In 2019 Convertus was created by the merger of Renewi Canada and WTT. Convertus North America has a focus on operating facilities, while WTT Netherlands delivers knowledge, technology and customer support. With 120 projects installed worldwide, we have the expertise to design, build, finance and operate any type of organic waste treatment facility.
