Waste to Energy
Waste-to-Energy (WtE) or Energy-from-Waste (EfW) is the process of generating energy in the form of electricity and/or heat from the primary treatment of waste.
Energy Recovery describes any technique or process that helps reduce the demand for energy to the overall system. We work closely with local Waste-to- Energy Facilities, providing them with suitable solid wastes and refuse from your manufacturing or production processes that would otherwise have gone to the landfill.
Most often, Waste-to- Energy Facilities incinerate these solid wastes, producing thermal energy to generate steam that drives turbine electrical generators. Our local communities benefit from the extended life of the landfill and more clean energy.
Waste to Fuels
Another process utilizing both hazardous and non-hazardous waste is termed Waste-to-Fuels whereby waste is processed at cement kilns for fuels.
We work closely with our approved facilities, providing waste and refuse that would otherwise have gone to the landfill. We all benefit as this waste stream generates significant quantities of clean, renewable energy and a reduction of greenhouse gases. Utilizing waste as a form of energy has become the baseline for success in many solid waste management systems.
With every Waste Analysis Study performed, the expert analysts at Pinnacle are looking for ways to help your company find recycling opportunities for all of the waste streams generated by your manufacturing or production processes: i.e., Zero Landfill. This is process management taken to the ultimate efficiency!
Our studies often identify ways to minimize waste in your production and manufacturing processes. And, for the waste streams that are produced, we find recycling or alternative uses, diverting your waste from the landfill. This may help you work more efficiently, it may lower your operation costs, and it certainly promotes a sustainable environment.
Altogether, this creates another marketing opportunity to enhance the public’s perception of your company as one that promotes good stewardship of our natural resources and concern for the quality of life in the community.
