CHICAGO and BOSTON – (April 25, 2024) – Tradebe Environmental Services and Veolia North America announce a strategic commercial agreement that ensures guaranteed access to high-temperature treatment for Tradebe at the new state-of-the-art facility that Veolia will be opening in Gum Springs, Arkansas, in 2025, addressing the pressing demand for additional capacity for hazardous waste treatment.

Veolia’s facility at Gum Springs will set a new industry standard for the safe, efficient and reliable treatment of waste materials, and the agreement with Tradebe – which comes a year before the facility opens – will go far to help both companies stay ahead of the curve in meeting the needs of the market.

This pioneering move in the sector illustrates the aligned strategy of Tradebe and Veolia to provide cutting edge solutions to support sustainable growth for industrial players in the U.S. hazardous waste market. Already a leading company in the hazardous waste treatment sector in the U.S., Veolia has an ambition to continue to expand its footprint in order to address growing demand.

“Veolia North America is pleased to enter into this partnership with Tradebe, which is an example of how business can work collaboratively to address environmental waste challenges. With thermal treatment demand growing across the country, a forward-looking vision is necessary to meet the needs of the future, and that’s what this partnership provides,” said Veolia North America President and CEO Fred Van Heems.

Oriol Mateu, CEO of Tradebe Environmental Services U.S., echoed this sentiment, stating, “This partnership marks a significant milestone in our commitment to innovation and customer satisfaction. By leveraging each other’s expertise, technology and resources, we will provide customers with seamless end-to-end services, resolving existing inefficiencies and gaps in the market. This collaboration promises customers enhanced accessibility, reliability and innovation. Together with Veolia, we are poised to achieve remarkable results and lead the way in shaping the future of recycling.”

Aligned with both companies’ shared commitment to sustainability, Veolia’s new facility will employ environmentally friendly technology for self-powering operations. The high-temperature thermal treatment will use energy generated from a solar farm, presenting a more sustainable option for the market and the environment. The agreement begins in 2024 to provide a seamless transition in 2025.
