Date:7/17/2009

MENDOTA, Calif., July 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Covanta Energy, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Covanta Holding Corporation (NYSE: CVA) and a world leader in the development and operation of large scale Energy-from-Waste and other renewable energy projects, today announced its Covanta Mendota biomass facility has earned "STAR" status in the California Department of Industrial Relations, Division of Occupational Safety and Health Voluntary Protection Program (Cal/VPP).

VPP "STAR" status is the highest honor given to worksites with comprehensive, successful safety and health management systems. In awarding this elite status, Cal/OSHA gives strong consideration to the level of employee involvement in on-site health and safety program development and to long-term management commitment and support. STAR recipients have also achieved injury and illness rates at or below the state average of their respective industries.

"Covanta Mendota's operational excellence and vigilance in regards to workplace health and safety has led to this prestigious designation of VPP 'STAR' by Cal/OSHA. We applaud them for their accomplishment and thank them for their extraordinary efforts," said Seth Myones, President of Covanta Americas. "Mendota's health and safety performance exemplifies Covanta's long-standing commitment to our employees' well-being and to the continued improvement of health and safety programs."

Covanta Mendota is the first of Covanta's eight biomass facilities to receive the VPP "STAR" and one of 29 Covanta facilities that have achieved the prestigious designation on a state or federal level. The Mendota biomass facility, along with Covanta's Stanislaus Resource Recovery Facility in Crows Landing, CA are two of only 70 facilities to earn this distinction in California.
