Covanta is a world leader in providing municipalities and corporate customers with sustainable waste and energy solutions. The Company’s core business—operation and ownership of Energy-from-Waste (EfW) facilities—helps communities and businesses around the world convert millions of tons of waste (otherwise destined for landfills) into clean, renewable energy. These facilities reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, conserve land and complement recycling efforts.
Our Covanta Environmental Solutions business provides commercial and industrial waste clients a variety of sustainable waste management services, including consulting, logistics support, recycling and energy recovery services. Our expanded service offerings provide our clients with additional routes to meet their zero-waste, zero-waste-to-landfill and sustainability goals.
As clients reduce, reuse, recycle and recover energy, they reduce environmental impacts associated with materials and waste in our society. Ultimately, we seek not only to divert materials from landfills, but also to find fully sustainable waste management solutions that consider economics and the environment.
Covanta also owns and/or operates two small-scale hydroelectric facilities and other waste management businesses, such as transfer stations, which broaden the geographic reach of our core facilities.
