Waste to Energy
When customers put their trash out for pickup, it’s just the beginning. From the moment waste leaves the curb, it can go to a recycling center to be repurposed for further use; to a clean power plant for use as fuel to provide renewable energy; to a composting facility where organic waste can be converted into a nutrient-rich soil amendment or a fuel; or to a landfill where it creates energy as it decomposes.
Our goal is to manage more than 20 million tons a year of recyclable materials by 2030.
6.6 million tons of paper Resulting in savings of: 107 million trees, 23 million cubic yards of landfill space, 27 billion kilowatts of energy, and 46 billion gallons of water. 3 Energy use savings = 937K households powered
This project seeks to create enough energy from waste to power nearly 1.2 million homes — the equivalent of almost 23.5 million barrels of oil or nearly 6.1 million tons of coal.
This project would generate electricity by using municipal solid waste as a fuel. Municipal solid waste is converted to energy through carefully controlled combustion, using advanced emissions-control equipment. The plants we will build, will reduce the volume of the waste up to 90 percent, saving valuable space in landfills, and they provide a clean alternative to the use of fossil fuels.
