Plant Tour of Covanta Energy Facility

Clean Renewable Energy
As America strives to find alternative sources of energy, Energy from Waste is a logical solution.  For every ton of waste processed in a Covanta facility, we avoid the need to import one barrel of oil or mine a quarter ton of coal, saving the equivalent of 20 million barrels of oil or five million tons of coal a year.  Covanta doesn’t need to mine or drill for our fuel; we get it right from the average person’s trash can and use it to supply 8 percent of the nation’s non-hydro renewable energy. 
 
Covanta Energy is the world’s largest owner and operator of Energy from Waste (EfW) facilities.  Covanta’s 44 EfW facilities worldwide provide communities with a sustainable solution to their solid waste disposal needs by using trash to generate clean, renewable energy.  Annually, Covanta’s state-of-the-art facilities safely convert more than 20 million tons of waste into 9 million megawatt hours of clean electricity and create more than 9 billion pounds of steam which is sold to a variety of industries.
