In accordance with the waste hierarchy and our commitment to responsible water management for our own operations, Covanta utilizes certain wastewaters as direct replacements for certain processes that would otherwise use potable water at our EfW facilities, in our air pollution control equipment or for other facility uses. Depending on composition and contaminants, wastewaters may be mutually beneficial, offering a reuse solution for the generator and providing some properties that are useful in our own processes.
