FEECO Waste Transformation

At FEECO the possibilities are endless…


FEECO has been helping customers transform their waste materials and process by-products into value-added products for over 65 years.


Whether you have a material you’re currently landfilling, or a process by-product that goes to waste because it’s not usable in its current form, FEECO can take your material, and through testing in our Innovation Center, turn it into a value-added product.


After a workable process and set-up is identified, the Innovation Center has the equipment available to simulate production conditions, scale the process up to a full-scale production plant and produce end product anywhere from pounds to tons per hour.


Some transformations include turning sludges into organic-based fertilizers, clays and saw dust into cat litter, fuel pellets from petroleum coke dust, and recovering valuable metal from spent batteries.


“What the world today calls waste — to FEECO International, they are really just raw materials for products that haven’t been invented yet.” – Dan Madigan (President)

When FEECO converts a customer’s waste into a usable, profitable product, we are also helping that customer prevent wastes from ending up in landfills, creating a win-win situation for both the customer and the environment. Take a look at our waste counter below and see exactly how much waste, in tons, FEECO has helped divert from landfills over the years. You’ll also note the economic impact and jobs created from these innovative processes as well.
