Now more than ever, we need environmentally and socially responsible means of managing solid waste. Covanta’s EfW and materials-processing facilities help our communities move up the waste hierarchy, recover resources in the form of materials and energy and provide critical local and community waste management infrastructure all while helping to reduce GHG emissions from waste management. Our EfW facilities deliver clean, renewable baseload power right next to load centers and help provide resiliency to the electrical grid.

  • One ton of CO2e reduced, on average, for every ton of municipal solid waste diverted from landfill and sent to an EfW facility
  • Air emissions reductions of up to 50 percent since the advent of the Clean World Initiative, our first sustainability program
