Browse By Waste Types


Industrial waste comes in many different forms, in all sizes, weights, moisture contents, and calorific values. Common industrial waste material can include highly combustible materials such as paper, cardboard, timber, plastics, and rubber, plus many other materials that are daily by-products from commercial and industrial processes.

For years, landfills were the "go-to" for industrial waste disposal because of the variety of waste materials. However, in recent years, more awareness has been given to the world's current landfill crisis, with many products, such as plastics not being bio-degradable. Rather than plastics sitting in landfills for decades incineration has become the preferred disposal method for industrial waste.

Incineration reduces the environmental impact while keeping up with the demand of multiple waste streams. The incineration process produces less emission than traditional landfills but also has the capability of energy recovery. The heat from incineration can be converted into usable energy to help power your plant or other aspects 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.
