Sustainability
is in CIRCON Environmental’s DNA

CIRCON Environmental is a proud part of the circular economy, in which businesses no longer use a resource and dispose of the leftovers, but instead find a new use for those leftovers and create a fresh life cycle (and economic purpose) for waste materials, rather than sending them off to a landfill.

Our 4 Rs / Innovative Waste Solutions

CIRCON’s foundation — and every service it provides — is built on its 4 Rs

4Rs-animation

CIRCON and the Circular Economy

Built on the practice of treating all resources, even those previously considered “waste,” as materials to be given value and new uses. By finding ways to repurpose these materials, the elimination of waste becomes a very tangible possibility. We Identify waste streams that may still contain value, then aggregate and extract these valued materials from those streams. The materials given new life as waste-derived fuels or blended fuels that are used to power other sectors of industry.

“For our customers, CIRCON Environmental means more choices, more innovation, and more efficiency while demonstrating their commitment to sustainability. We’re leaving the days when a linear economy built profitable business models. The circular economy where we reuse, recycle, convert waste to fuel—this is our future.”

- CIRCON Environmental CEO Frank Iezzi

From the roots of the Four R’s, “Eight Pillars of Sustainability” have sprouted.

CIRCON Refuel

CIRCON REFUEL is a Waste Derived Fuel that has been repurposed from tank cleaning residual wastes at US petroleum refineries or containerized waste processed through our RCRA part B facility. These same wastes would have traditionally been thermally treated as a waste in incinerators with no environmental benefits and leaving a large landfill residual.
