Covanta Acquires Holding Stations, Exova Buys Catalyst Environmental

by | Jan 7, 2014

Covanta Holding Corporation, a sustainable waste management and renewable energy company, has acquired two transfer stations in northern New Jersey from Advanced Disposal.

In total, the transfer stations are permitted to accept 2,500 tons per day of municipal solid waste, construction and demolition waste and recyclables. The facilities are located in Paterson and Totowa, NJ. Covanta now owns or operates 15 transfer stations in the US.

The acquisition increases stability and flexibility of fuel supply to the company’s energy-from-waste facilities, says Derek Veenhof, Covanta Waste Solutions executive vice president.

Meanwhile, global testing group Exova has acquired Catalyst Environmental Limited, a stack emissions testing specialist in the UK and Ireland.

The company, which will become Exova Catalyst, will add six facilities and 58 personnel to Exova’s existing network of more than 3,600 specialists worldwide and will further extend the company’s range of environmental testing services that include air, water and soil.

Specialist stack emissions services offered include landfill gas sampling, continuous emissions monitoring, annual surveillance testing, dispersion pattern modelling and lab testing of physical and chemical samples and emissions.

Demand for stack emissions and wider environmental testing is predicted to grow as new domestic and international legislation is introduced, creating opportunities for specialist testing as authorities and organizations worldwide seek to ensure compliance, the company says.
