Clean Harbors to Build Incinerator Unit in Arkansas

Clean Harbors Inc. has begun building an industrial waste destruction unit in El Dorado, Ark., which it said is the first time in nearly 30 years that incineration capacity has been constructed in the United States.

The Norwell, Mass.-based waste management company will nearly double waste destruction capacity at its El Dorado plant with a new rotary kiln incinerator, according to a news release. Clean Harbors is investing more than $100 million in the project, which will add 120 jobs.

“Clean Harbors new world-class incineration unit will add much-needed waste destruction capacity to our North American waste management network,” said Phil Retallick, senior vice president of regulatory affairs.

The El Dorado incineration facility specializes in the destruction of hazardous and industrial waste generated by a variety of businesses, industries and numerous governmental entities at the local, state and federal levels.
