Our website was designed to provide specific details about Klean Industries, who we are, what we do and have done, how we operate, where we work, and why we do what we do. We hope you enjoy it, learn something valuable, and have the opportunity to digest what we are all about. We also hope that this site touches you in a profound way and makes you ask yourself new questions about sustainability, the circular economy, and what it means to each and every one of us.

Behind this website is a committed team of people – executives, engineers, scientists, professors, inventors, entrepreneurs, activists, environmentalists, and investors who together believe that we can help build and support new, clean, and renewable sources of energy that both reduce pollution and climate change while creating sustainable economies for generations to come.

Here on this website, you will find the technologies and solutions of tomorrow that are being applied today. We are committed to developing ideas that involve a new way of thinking about resources, waste management, clean energy, and the environment, using proven technologies that convert waste into value with a focus on doing more with less. We hope you will take notice of what can be done when you think outside the traditional landfill and incineration scenario.

As we all know, there is no shortage of waste. However, there is a shortage of knowledge about turning waste into an environmental and financial asset. The Klean Team is continuously developing methods of how to go far beyond “reduce, reuse, and recycle” to generate new revenue and at the same time help sustain the environment.

At Klean Industries, we help customers either eliminate waste entirely or convert waste into valuable commodities. In many cases, we have used new and emerging technologies to develop systems that recover or reuse materials that were formerly considered worthless. A key part of Klean’s overall business focus is providing technologies that redesign the way businesses consume and reuse the cornucopia of resources that are constantly being extracted, mined, and harvested.

One statistic makes clear the demand placed on earth by our current global economic system - every day the worldwide economy burns an amount of energy that took the planet 10,000 days to create. Or, put another way, 27 years’ worth of stored solar energy is consumed by utilities, cars, houses, factories, and farms every 24 hours. Essentially, every calendar year we humans gobble down what took planet Earth almost 9,855 years to create; now that’s shocking and unsustainable!

At Klean Industries we design and build sustainable solutions; we specialize in designing commercially viable resource recovery models that mimic nature in recognizing that waste equals food, such as where waste from one industry becomes a feedstock for another. Klean provides its customers, whether they are in government, industry, or business, with comprehensive waste resource and management solutions. From planning, designing, and constructing waste system infrastructure to providing innovative technologies and systems to process, recycle, reuse, recover, and convert waste into value, we are leaders in sustainable waste-stream optimization.

Environmental stewardship benefits businesses, communities, and the health of our planet. We help customers reduce environmental management costs while minimizing business risks and environmental liabilities, and we look for opportunities to convert liabilities into assets. We apply best management practices and appropriate only the most highly efficient, environmentally superior, and cost-effective technologies for the job. Whatever your environmental focus, Klean Industries can help you achieve a practical equilibrium between your mission statement or balance sheet and the balance of nature.

Today’s businesses currently need to consider three basic but important issues:

  • (1) what they take,
  • (2) what they make, and
  • (3) what they waste

These three have never been more intimately connected than they are today. With dwindling resources and an ever-growing demand on the ecosystem, we must reevaluate how we do business.

In our model everything is integrated, just as it is in nature, creating more prosperity throughout the business chain. Better business ethics, a better environment, more profit, fewer costs, more jobs, smoother production, and more prosperity for all living things. The key here is that financial prosperity is an end product of utilizing environmentally responsible resource-recovery technologies. All our technologies can be vertically integrated with all types of business and we have designed several different business models that incorporate virtually every aspect of healthy, environmentally responsible cooperation among all levels of business across the board. These integration models are revolutionizing how business is now done and will be in the future.

Our people have a long history of caring for our natural environment and are more aware now than ever before that our design, engineering, consulting, and corporate projects profoundly influence the quality of human communities and the natural environments that support them. Klean Industries is dedicated to being a responsible corporate citizen and sustainability leader wherever we do business. Our commitment to sustainability runs deep. As an employee-owned corporation, Klean Industries fosters a culture of self-motivation and personal responsibility, and our employees value and support sustainability, both inside and outside the workplace. We have formally adopted sustainability policies and processes to ensure that we walk our talk and we are active corporate members of the organizations that are shaping the future of a sustainable industry.

The Klean Team believes that the world moves forward on the back of inspiration and ideas but most of all action. For them, a day is more than 24 hours. A day is an opportunity to make something happen - to make a positive difference. These are people who believe that making a contribution matters and who find it impossible to go about their lives any other way. These are the people you’ll find working with Klean Industries, not because they have to, but because it’s who they are. 

Klean Industries is fully committed to creating a healthy and prosperous environment. We see this opportunity as our chance to contribute to achieving the sustainable society we all want and need. It is instilled in the very culture of the organization and is a cornerstone of our success, and we look forward to helping you and your company become more environmentally empowered and sustainable. Please do not hesitate to contact us for further information.

Here is one of my favorite quotes by Hiroyuki Sanada, “None of us know how long we shall live, or when our time has come, but soon, all that will be left of our brief lives is the pride our children feel when they speak our names.”

Wishing you all the best on behalf of Klean Industries.
