Environmentally Responsible Energy from Waste  

Energy Recovery

90,000+ Drums of Waste Reclaimed for Energy Annually

Crystal Clean’s energy recovery disposal process take non-hazardous waste and convert it safely into energy to reduce the environmental impact of waste. Waste doesn’t need to end up in a landfill. Improvements in modern technology have created alternative methods to dispose of waste, diverting it from landfills and transforming it into energy to power our society. The waste-to-energy disposal process represents part of the widespread development of technologies that mitigate climate change by lowering greenhouse gas production, offsetting emissions from fossil fuels and reducing landfill waste. Energy recovery is an ideal disposal method for waste and a positive addition to any generator’s sustainability initiatives.

Energy Recovery Process

Waste Collection

Professional Crystal Clean representatives collect waste from generators following EPA, DOT and local regulations.

Testing & Evaluation

Waste is tested and evaluated to determine if it can be recovered for energy through the waste-to-energy disposal process.


Approved waste is transported to a Crystal Clean accumulation facility for consolidation. Once consolidated, it is transported to a waste-to-energy facility.

Energy Generation

Waste is burned at the waste-to-energy facility within a self-sustaining combustion chamber. During this process, energy is generated using the waste as a fuel substitute to create steam which powers a turbine to generate electricity that is put back into municipal power grids.

Relevant Services

Waste collected from the following services have the ability to be disposed using Crystal Clean’s energy recovery capabilities.
