Covanta Holding Corporation, through its subsidiaries, engages in the ownership and operation of infrastructure for the conversion of waste to energy (known as ‘energy-from-waste’ or ‘EfW’). The company also engages in the related waste transport and disposal, and other renewable energy production businesses. The company operates in North America, which includes waste and energy services operations located primarily in the United States and Canada. The company is constructing a waste to energy facility in Dublin, Ireland, which the company owns and would operate upon completion. It holds equity interests in EfW facilities in China and Italy. EfW Business The company operates and/or has ownership positions in 46 EfW facilities, which are primarily located in North America; and 11 additional energy generation facilities, including other renewable energy production facilities in North America (wood biomass and hydroelectric). The company also operates a waste management infrastructure, including 18 transfer stations that is complementary to its core EfW business. Other Sustainable Service Offerings In addition to the company’s core EfW business, it offers various sustainable waste management solutions in response to customer demand, which are sometimes offered through joint ventures or with third parties. The company offers tailored recycling and recovery solutions, providing alternatives to landfills to improve its customers' reputation and reduce their risk. North America EfW Projects: The company’s customers for waste services or facility operations are principally municipal entities, though the company also markets disposal capacity at certain facilities to commercial customers. Its facilities primarily sell electricity, either to utilities at contracted rates or, in situations where a contract is not in place, at prevailing market rates in regional markets (primarily PJM, NEPOOL, and NYISO in the Northeastern United States), and in some cases sell steam directly to industrial users. The company also operates, and in some cases has ownership interests in, transfer stations and landfills (primarily used for ash disposal rather than municipal solid waste) that are ancillary and complementary to its EfW projects and generate additional revenue from disposal fees or operating fees. The company operates EfW projects in 16 states and 1 Canadian province, and is constructing an EfW project in a second Canadian province. Other Waste Management Infrastructure and Operations: In conjunction with the company’s EfW business, it also owns and/or operates 18 transfer stations (with aggregate capacity of approximately 25,000 TPD); 1 industrial waste treatment, storage and disposal facility; and 4 ash landfills, which the company utilizes to supplement and manage the waste supply and ash disposal requirements at its EfW operations, and in some cases to expand its sustainable solutions service offerings. Biomass Projects: The company owns and operates seven wood-fired generation facilities. Five of these facilities are located in California, and two are located in Maine. The combined gross energy output from these facilities is 165 megawatts. Other Projects Outside the North America segment, the company has interests in international power projects in Ireland, China, and Italy, all but one of which are EfW projects. EfW Projects: In Ireland, the company entered into agreements in September 2014 to build, own and operate a new 600,000 metric ton-per-year, 58 megawatt facility in Dublin, Ireland. The company expects to source residential, commercial and industrial waste from Dublin and the surrounding areas and sell electricity into the local electricity grid. In China, the company has equity interests in two EfW projects and has a 40% equity interest in Chongqing Sanfeng Covanta Environmental Industry Co., Ltd., a company that provides a suite of engineering, construction and operating services and equipment sales to EfW facilities in China. Chongqing Sanfeng Covanta Environmental Industry Co., Ltd. also has a minority equity interest in an EfW facility in China. Independent Power Projects: In
