Cavanaugh & Associates, P.A. – Consulting
Stewardship through Innovation
At Cavanaugh, stewardship through innovation is more than a tagline – it’s the way they work together to reduce waste and make smart infrastructure investments that support safe, sustainable supplies of water and energy for our growing world. What you do matters to many people – and they help you do it as effectively and cost-efficiently as possible.
Incorporated in 1995, Cavanaugh is a consulting firm that develops innovative solutions and programs that optimize water efficiency and waste-to-energy.
Their primary market focus for these services centers around North Carolina and expands organically to the neighboring states of South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and Georgia.
In the Waste-to-Energy industry, they continue to expand their reach in areas where the production, processing, and preservation of food are of great importance, and the best management practices relating to agricultural wastes leads to the recycling of organics. The creation of an energy product, in the form of biogas or synthetic natural gas, has been identified as a primary focus for their efforts.
The creative thought that Cavanaugh brings helps to bring buried infrastructure in full focus and wasted resources – water losses and bioenergy – into clarified thought and strategies for addressing that move it beyond “we need to do this” and deliver upon “we are doing this.”
With rising energy and waste disposal costs, many businesses are evaluating waste conversion/management systems to minimize future expenses and replace “dirty” energy with clean renewables.
But to achieve the economic returns that are needed to justify the expense of bioenergy systems, the value of various energy offtakes, nutrient offtakes, and other products must be considered.
