Heritage Environmental Services has acquired Rineco Chemical Industries, an innovative leader in the waste management industry and North America’s largest single-site fuel blending disposal provider. Rineco is headquartered in Haskell, Ark., near Little Rock.“Rineco’s high-quality fuel blending operation completes Heritage’s waste technology offerings allowing us to be a one-stop-shop for our customers,” said Jeff Laborsky, CEO of Heritage Environmental Services. “This acquisition combines the strengths of Heritage with Rineco’s employee expertise, customer relationships, technologies and geographic locations.”

Fuel blending is the process of safely transforming waste material into liquid and solid waste-derived fuels, which can then be used as clean, secondary fuel sources to replace coal and natural gas in cement kilns and other high BTU applications.

“We’ve had a strong relationship with Heritage for a quarter century,” said Dale Welch, Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Rineco. “They have a rich history of investment in environmental services and a strong safety and compliance record. Being part of the Heritage family will enable Rineco to continue building on the success of our organization. Our foundation is the people of Rineco and combining with Heritage supports their professional growth and continuity of Rineco in the Haskell community.”
