Sustainable solutions for our customers and our environment.
Clean Earth provides innovative beneficial reuse solutions for an array of specialty waste material such as dredged material, CCPs, and drill and pipeline cuttings. Clean Earth and the clients we serve seek to avoid landfills and utilize recycling and beneficial reuse applications for their waste materials.
Clean Earth provides innovative dredged material processing and beneficial reuse solutions for environmentally impacted dredged material generated through the process of channel maintenance and deepening projects. This dredged material, an aggregate of sediment accumulated at the bottom of a waterway, is removed to provide fifty-foot deep channels required for large ocean-going shipping vessels. Dredged material is processed through various means to meet specifications for upland beneficial reuse such as landfill capping and cover, mine reclamation, and brownfield redevelopment.
Coal Combustion Products (CCPs)
Clean Earth’s unique experience as a “market maker” for beneficial use of our entire spectrum of environmentally safe recycled products allows us to quickly and consistently find beneficial uses for CCPs.
Whether it’s a one-time coal ash impoundment clean out and closure or a 20-year ash production requirements contract, Clean Earth possesses unparalleled experience in the use of pre-treatment, handling and logistics necessary to place your combustion products into sound markets and beneficial reuses. Our engineered material can be recycled or beneficially reused for road base, brownfield reclamation, and mine reclamation.
Clean Earth's full compass of services for CCP management includes the research, technology, and strategy for go to market. For every CCP Management project we handle, we take into consideration that there is an early review needed focused from all environmental views.
Drill & Pipeline Cuttings
Clean Earth developed the first PADEP permitted technology that allows oil and gas companies to recycle or beneficially reuse drill and pipeline cuttings derived from oil and gas exploration.
Overall the beneficial reuse of drill cuttings at brownfield/Act 2 sites provides direct environmental benefits such as:
The diversion of drill cutting wastes from landfill disposal resulting in reduced utilization of vital landfill space which allows the resulting air space to be used for other residual wastes and municipal wastes that are not amenable to beneficial reuse.
The use of processed drill cuttings as an effective engineered cap at sites that are already environmentally impacted offsets the use of other natural resources as capping material at these contaminated sites. This minimizes the potential for the media transfer of pollutants to “clean” or un-impacted sources of soil/fill.
Helping to restore a property to useful services, resulting in potential increases in jobs and the preservation of green field space is a supplemental benefit that provides measureable enhancements both environmentally and socioeconomically.
