Eaton's Greenwood, South Carolina Plant Recognized for Reducing Waste, GHG Emissions through Zero Waste-to-Landfill Program

Greenwood, South Carolina - Power management company Eaton is recognizing its hydraulics facility in Greenwood for achieving “zero waste-to-landfill” by nearly eliminating all wastes sent to landfills through recycling, re-use, new work processes and other means.

Eaton is encouraging its manufacturing sites to achieve zero waste-to-landfill as part of its waste management program and also as a means to reduce the release of greenhouse gases (GHG) associated with landfills, especially methane, a GHG 20 times more potent than carbon dioxide. In 2014, Eaton reduced its landfilled wastes by about 7 percent, or 1,500 metric tons, as part of a global zero waste-to-landfill program. This eliminated 2,500 metric tons of CO2 that otherwise would have been released during the transportation and storage of landfilled wastes in 2014.Together, more than 50 Eaton sites around the world have achieved the goal of sending zero waste to the landfill.
