Since 1991, NEFCO has been a neighbor and partner to the densely populated communities serviced by the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority (MWRA). Charged with cleaning up the Boston Harbor, the MWRA awarded NEFCO the contract to permit, design, and construct a facility to transport liquid sludge via barge, process it into a Class A biosolids product, and beneficially use the product. The MWRA currently delivers its sludge to the facility via underwater pipelines and the barges are no longer used.

NEFCO’s success at equipment lifecycle maintenance and upgrades is demonstrated well in the Quincy facility that has operated since 1991 with some of the original equipment still in service. All dryer trains have been maintained and components repaired and upgraded within the same footprint as the original installation over 25 years ago.

Product produced at the Quincy facility is used both as a fertilizer and as an alternative fuel.

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.
