In the past, farmers would burn general farm waste, diseased crops, and fallen livestock in open fires. Agricultural "burning" was just part of the planting cycle, clearing out the old crops to sow the new. Not only has this practice been proven to harm the environment, but it also reduces the fertility of the soil.

Waste incineration produces fewer emissions than traditional landfills or open burning while maintaining the integrity of the soil, making it the most efficient solution for agricultural waste disposal.


The environmental aspect of incineration doesn't end with fewer emissions. Incineration can also be converted into usable energy to help power your plant or other parts of your facility. Energy recovery provides cost savings for your business and helps maintain environmentally friendly practices.

Many times these systems require more technical features than our standard products. When this is the case, our team of engineers can create custom energy recovery systems to fit your business' needs.
