Tank Cleaning Services

Industry standard for slurry oil and heavy solid tank cleaning includes mobilization of contractor equipment, setup of centrifuge processing equipment, portable boilers, 24/7 on-site processing, on-site storage of separator cake in roll-off containers, breakdown, demobilization and a lot of labor. Additionally, the processing contractor will require utilities to be provided during the tank cleaning process. These utilities include the use of a crane for setup, electric, steam, and diluent (LCO), and the use of a portable thermal oxidizer unit to scrub emissions during the tank cleaning process. As you can imagine, this method is expensive, time consuming, and labor intensive.

Not to mention, once all the processing is complete you still have to dispose of the hazardous waste tank bottom solids. This is becoming more and more difficult as Federal Regulations continue to restrict your disposal options and pricing for commercial incineration continues to increase.

Why not eliminate on-site processing by fuel blending your hazardous waste tank bottoms for cement kiln disposal?

Ultimately, your hazardous waste tank bottoms will be 100% recycled as an alternative fuel to power kiln operations. Your hazardous waste solids will become part of the cement making process.

The benefits are clear:

  • Eliminate the need for on-site processing via centrifuge.
  • Eliminate paying expensive disposal pricing to the usual commercial incinerator facilities.
  • Receive recycled credits for your tank bottoms.
  • Eliminate storage of waste in roll-off containers and vacuum boxes.
  • Quicker turnaround on API Tank Inspections.
  • All hazardous waste disposed of at a cement kiln is 100% recycled as an alternative fuel.
  • Kiln disposal is an alternative to landfill.
  • Cement kilns achieve a destruction and removal efficiency of at least 99.99% as required by U.S.E.P.A. regulations for most organic wastes.
  • Cement kilns operate at temperatures over 50% higher than commercial hazardous waste incinerators.
  • Cement kilns are heavily regulated.
  • Federal law favors resource recovery of wastes over disposal.
  • Removal and on-site blending process for disposal of waste at a cement kiln will not require adjustments to your Title V air permit.
