Who We Are

With its roots dating back to 1991, the Waste-to-Energy Association (WTEA) is a national trade organization representing waste-to-energy companies and communities that rely upon these facilities to educate policy makers on the current scientific data and advocate for waste-to-energy as a key component of sustainable waste management.

 

Current WTEA members own and operate the vast majority of the modern waste-to-energy facilities that operate nationwide, safely disposing of municipal solid waste, while at the same time generating renewable electricity using modern combustion technology equipped with state-of-the-art emission control systems.

What We Do

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, Waste-to-Energy "generates a renewable energy source and reduces carbon emissions by offsetting the need for energy from fossil sources and reduces methane generation from landfills."

 

 Collectively, the United States’ Waste-to-Energy facilities process 94,000 tons of waste per day, producing enough green energy to power 2.3 million homes. This is a $10 billion dollar industry that employs approximately 6,000 American workers who strive every day to be a high-performing essential service provider to communities and the planet.
