Clean Earth Inc Acquires Phoenix Soil, LLC


MAY 11, 2016


Clean Earth, Inc. announced today the acquisition of privately owned Phoenix Soil, LLC located in Plainville, Connecticut.  This acquisition will mark Clean Earth’s fifteenth fixed-based location in the United States and will provide Clean Earth the opportunity to geographically expand soil recycling throughout the Northeast with a strong presence in the New England markets.

Chris Dods, Clean Earth President & CEO states, “The future is exciting for us. Over the past 5 years we have recycled 18.5 million tons of soil alone, and our mission remains the same – to recycle and reuse waste material that would otherwise go into landfills. The addition of Phoenix Soil supports our plan for smart growth and a sustainable future. We are particularly excited by the addition of Dave Green to our team. Dave founded Phoenix and has built a tight knit team of high performers that will spark new ideas and growth for the entire enterprise.”

Phoenix Soil, now a Clean Earth Company, is a state-of-the-art thermal treatment facility processing non-hazardous petroleum-contaminated soils. Phoenix Soil, LLC has operated a low temperature thermal desorption manufacturing facility in Connecticut since 1993 and was the first treatment facility to obtain a Connecticut DEEP Beneficial Use Determination Permit allowing treated soil to be classified as clean fill throughout Connecticut.  

Dave Green, now Chief Science Officer for Clean Earth stated, “I am thrilled to be a part of Clean Earth, for both me and the team I have built over the past 20 plus years. Phoenix has done well because of our people and now as a part of a bigger organization we will be able to project what we have learned across a broader geography and bigger team.”

Clean Earth owns and operates fifteen (15) facilities throughout the northeast with treatment platforms that consist of bioremediation, chemical fixation of RCRA hazardous wasteaerosols and consumer commodities, thermal desorption, aggregate production, drill cuttings and pipeline cuttings, and stabilization of dredged material. In 2015, Clean Earth recycled approximately 3.5 million tons of soil derived from various construction sites throughout the East Coast.
