See Energy Waste from a New Perspective
Mounting pressure to change long-held practices and address climate change is driving energy transition. Energy companies are facing increased scrutiny over their carbon footprint, and many are responding by making responsible environmental stewardship a fundamental part of doing business. The industry will need to pursue multiple avenues to reach aggressive climate goals. But, so far, changing energy waste disposal practices is not seen as one of those priorities. This is a missed opportunity, and at Milestone, we aim to change that.
Partnering with Milestone is smart business
Milestone changes your whole perspective on energy waste. Instead of an unavoidable byproduct, waste becomes an enormous opportunity. Our methods empower operators to adopt a waste management strategy that helps them reduce their carbon impact, meet ESG objectives, and do their part to achieve global climate goals – all while doing business with utmost efficiency.
Traditional methods present problems
Energy waste is commonly dumped into open reserve pits near the drilling site or spread directly on nearby land and tilled into the soil. Although this is permissible by law, these practices lead to greenhouse gas emissions and threaten to contaminate soil and groundwater. Obviously, this is the opposite of good environmental stewardship. It also leaves operators with huge liabilities, since they legally own their energy waste forever. By contrast, Milestone’s methods go beyond compliance to protect the environment and your business, and are cost-efficient compared to the obsolete practice of dumping the waste on the land.
A better way in every way
Milestone’s advanced waste sequestration solutions are proven safe, convenient, responsible, and permanent. Our proprietary slurry injection wells lock waste away deep underground in impermeable geologic formations, thousands of feet below the water table. Our landfills are expertly engineered and built to be a failsafe way of securing solids eternally without danger of leaks into surrounding soil and groundwater. Because we have both slurry injection wells and landfills, we’re equipped to be your single, professional resource for all waste management. And we’re located close to your operations, so you gain efficiencies while gaining on your net-zero goals.
