NOVAGO is operating in the waste treatment industry since 1992. For the first 23 years, the Company was functioning under the name of Zakład Usług Komunalnych USKOM Sp. z o.o.

In 2003, the majority of shares in the Company was acquired by Janusz Arent. Another breakthrough came in 2012, when NOVAGO attracted Abris Capital Partners as a strategic investor. After that date, the Company invested in further technological development, making sure its plants meet stringent EU requirements. It also changed its name into NOVAGO.

During the second half of 2016 NOVAGO was acquired by China Everbright International, one of the world’s leading players in the environmental industry. The acquisition of NOVAGO was the largest Chinese investment in Poland and one of the important projects under China’s One Belt One Road initiative. It marked the beginning of China Everbright International’s foray into the European waste treatment industry and another step forward in the implementation of China Everbright International's strategy to develop from domestic to overseas markets.

2017 marked the first full financial year since the acquisition of NOVAGO. After going through a period of integration during the year, NOVAGO successfully seized upon the synergies with the China Everbright International’s businesses, and was selected as one of the top ten “Belt and Road” PPP demonstration projects by the National Development and Reform Commission of the People's Republic of China.
