Highly regulated advanced air pollution control.

Regulated by EPA Title III Maximum Achievable Control Technology Standards (MACT).

Minimally regulated minimal air pollution control.

Over 170 air pollutants and 46 air toxins, including 4 known carcinogens.




1 ton of greenhouse gas avoided

Every ton of MSW managed at an EfW facility offsets approximately 1 ton of greenhouse gas emissions.

Leading source of greenhouse gas emissions

Landfills are a leading source of Methane, a powerful greenhouse gas 72x stronger than CO2.



550 KWh per ton

Enough energy to power the average home for 2 weeks.

65 KWh per ton

Enough to power the average home for 2 days.



50lbs. per ton

For each ton of MSW processed Covanta EfW facilities recover 50lbs. of metal.

0lbs.per ton

Landfills bury valuable metal with the MSW and no recovery is made.



One hour to process

It takes about an hour to process material and recover energy to the grid.

100+ years to process

MSW degrades in landfills for 100 years or more with uncontrolled emissions presenting long-term environmental liability.
