We work persistently to turn wasted resources into durable, economic value
The U.S. generated 254 million tons of MSW in 2013. This corresponds to more than 8 billion tons of industrial waste.
At an average disposal cost of $44/ton, that's $361B in lost economic value.
To date, Waste Hub has diverted two billion pounds of industrial waste from landfill and incineration.
Recovering lost product and returning it to the industrial ecosystem
The sheer magnitude of wasted manufacturing resources simply doesn't make sense. We focus on extracting the value in these stranded assets to develop durable products and raw materials for other industries. Waste Hub is playing an active role in securing a prosperous and sustainable future for generations to come while generating millions of dollars in savings and new revenue for our partners.
