Waste to Energy
The average American produces about 2,000 pounds of garbage per year. To deal with all this, some cities burn part of their municipal solid wastes. Waste to Energy plants reduce the volume and weight of garbage dramatically. In fact, some facilities have eliminated 100% of the waste stream by converting it to energy. The USA EPA and the Department of Energy has deemed United States Waste to Energy as a ‘renewable energy source’. Pete Lien & Sons high-quality calcium products provide an effective solution for neutralizing & treating emissions from these plants, ensuring they emit clean air in our communities.
Additionally, Pete Lien & Sons products are used to treat landfill waste and compost.
