Why CIRCON Sustainability is a Better Way

We’re equipped to process a wide range of materials: paper packaging and plastics are designated for recycling opportunities; water is recovered from liquid products and prepared for recycling. In addition to landfill avoidance, valuable materials can be used as elements within CIRCON’s engineered fuel products, which reduce the need for mining and consuming fossil fuels such as coal.
