Vexor Technology’s pre-processing waste-to-energy service allows customers to avoid landfill disposal and gain the benefit of energy recovery. Through proper blending, we can prepare certain non-hazardous waste streams into material that is acceptable for burning at waste-to-energy incinerators. Some materials that do not meet the acceptance criteria on their own can be processed through our master blending process allowing the material to be converted as well.
Solid and liquid non-hazardous materials are a perfect fit for waste-to-energy programs. Example non-hazardous materials include:
- Waste waters.
- Treatment, storage, disposal facilities (TSDF) blends oily debris, rags, filters, and powders.
- Consumer products.
- Industrial waste

There are many benefits for converting waste streams into a solid material that is acceptable for burning at waste-to-energy incinerators. Vexor annually sends over 38 million pounds of material for waste-to-energy incineration. This process:
- Saved over 8,255 barrels of fuel oil.
- Generated over 4,650 megawatt hours (MWH). Enough to power over 400 homes a year.
Environmental and economic benefits include:
- Help fighting against global warming.
Waste-to-energy reduces landfill methane gas emissions and preserves precious resources such as land, ground water and metal. One ton of trash produces one ton of CO2.
- Reduce dependence of fossil fuels.
Waste-to-energy reduces dependence of fossil fuel by reliably generating clean renewable energy locally.
- Secure destruction of wastes..
Reduces risk and liability.
Solid and liquid non-hazardous materials are a perfect fit for waste-to-energy programs. Both types of materials are accepted in bulk and containerized material in drums and totes.
Typically accepted materials include:
Using water-cooled furnaces, non-hazardous municipal and commercial solid wastes are combusted at greater than 2,000° F. Through this process, any waste is reduced to an ash – approximately 10% – 15% of its original volume. Waste-to-energy facilities have cutting edge monitoring devices and pollution control equipment, which meet and exceed the strict state and federal emissions standards.
