Incineration/Waste to Energy
While paper documents shredded by Blue-Pencil are recycled into new paper products, other materials require different methods of disposal. In many cases – such as the safe disposal of pharmaceutical products & medical instruments – incineration is the destruction method of choice because its high temperatures work to destroy pathogens and toxic contaminations. But it is also the most environmentally friendly option because the destroyed materials are not taking up landfill space; since they are incinerated, they are gone for good, and no longer an environmental liability.
Blue-Pencil’s GREEN Disposal System: Your Products are Gone for GOOD!
When you use Blue-Pencil for your product destruction needs, you are involved in a program that contributes to your security and the wellbeing of our planet.
The incineration process, entitled Waste-to-Energy (WtE), is a green energy source whereby the clean burning of solid waste creates electricity without creating any more pollution than the daily emission of 3 automobiles. The benefits of WtE incineration far outweigh placing of destroyed products into a landfill where they can leach into the groundwater, despite treatment attempts. One ton of solid waste, for example yields an entire barrel of oil, or a ton of coal – representing a 100% carbon credit! Products buried in a landfill are gone. Products converted to energy are gone for good.
