Since 1991, NEFCO has been a neighbor and partner to the densely populated communities serviced by the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority. Charged with cleaning up Boston Harbor, the Authority awarded NEFCO the contract to permit, design, and construct a facility to transport sludge via barge and provide dewatering, drying, pelletization, and product marketing. The MWRA currently delivers its sludge to the facility via underwater pipelines.
End-product pellets produced here are used both as a fertilizer and as an alternative fuel. Plant energy consumption has been reduced by approximately 50 percent — sustainable outcomes that positively impact the local area in which the facility operates.
The NEFCO leadership and Quincy-based employees proudly support the following local organizations: American Heart Association, Boston Harbor Association, the City of Quincy, MA Oyster Project, Quincy 2000 Collaborative, and the American Heart and Stroke Association.
