Energy Answers was formed in 1981 with a defined mission to develop integrated solid waste management solutions with environmentally sound resource recovery technologies. Our philosophy and commitment is to reach "zero disposal" by effectively recovering all the resources in the materials now seen as "waste". We envision our resource recovery approach as the foundation for sustainable development, where the demands placed upon the environment by people and commerce can be met without reducing the capacity of the environment to provide for future generations.
We are environmentalists with solutions. We don't just complain about environmental problems – we solve them with a team approach comprised of experts in local development, engineering, construction, private financing, urban planning, and community outreach.
We look forward to the opportunity to work with you to solve your environmental problems.
"What is a weed?"
"A plant whose virtues have not yet been discovered." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
A simple, under appreciated weed - the dandelion - has come to symbolize the Energy Answers commitment to look beyond the obvious to reveal the virtues of the materials which have typically ended up in landfills. Waste materials can have, or can be processed to have, value as raw materials for manufacturing and construction, or as a fuel for clean energy production.
