HistorySetting the Gold Standard in Corporate Social Responsibility
From its inception, Klean Industries mission was to close the loop on consumption, waste and industry by recovering sustainable commodities that can re-enter the manufacturing supply chain. Klean Industries has a pragmatic and yet creative approach to energy and waste problems consistently rising to the challenge of providing innovate, sustainable and economical solutions.
Klean's Technical Team has been responsible for the construction of billions of dollars' worth of energy and resource recovery projects worldwide. These have encompassed solar, geo-thermal, wind, nuclear and the combustion, gasification and carbonization of municipal solid wastes, coal, tires, plastics and automotive shredder residues. Our Team's proven ability to take an idea and combine it with a clear vision of implementation has created world firsts in engineering, a multitude of times.
Klean has developed strong industrial relationships not only in the waste industry, but also the chemicals and materials manufacturing sectors to forge new supply chains that are based on sustainable commodities. These companies are the largest in their sectors; power production, oil, chemical, automotive, construction and advanced material manufacturers.
After years of research and due diligence on niche technologies for recycling petroleum based waste, specifically for the processing of tires, plastics and shredder residues, Klean acquired its own pyrolysis and gasification IP, a platform technology that has been proven at over fifty commercial facilities. The patented Advanced Conversion Technology (ACT) has been optimized to recycle high calorific waste which is the primary focus of the Klean Team.
