Closing the Loop for a Better Future™

Who We Are

Convertus was created in 2019 by the merger of Renewi Canada and Waste Treatment Technologies (“WTT”) North America as a business ideally positioned to be a part of the emergency circular economy – an economy that keeps resources in use for as long as possible through recycling and recovery. Together, we provide our customers with a complete solution for all of their organic waste sector needs.
