Environmental Solutions

Cox is constantly searching for new sustainable technologies and programs to help create environmental solutions. This has resulted in projects that take a different approach to how we consume and manage our natural resources, and make a positive impact on our communities and the world. 

CleanTech

With a goal to build on our commitment to sustainability while creating new business ventures, the Cleantech initiative leverages new technology to provide us with contemporary ways to think about the environment. Focusing on three areas — water treatment operations, sustainable agriculture and energy services — Cleantech is taking environmental challenges and transforming them into business opportunities. 

GOLDEN ISLES CONSERVATION CENTER

Located in Nahunta, Ga., the Golden Isles Conservation Center applies an Italian-developed technology that uses organic materials to generate heat to break down discarded tires into their original components: synthesis oil, carbon black, steel and synthesis gas. This removes waste from landfills and waterways and allows the byproducts to be repurposed. 

New River Energy Facility

In a partnership with the Raleigh County Solid Waste Authority, Cox built the New River Energy Facility in Beckley, W. Va. to transform byproducts from the waste sector into clean energy for the community. The facility captures landfill gas and uses it to generate energy, while at the same time reducing the amount of methane gas that enters the atmosphere.
