  • Do you know the two most important words required to understand oil spill booming?

    Much has been written (incorrectly) about how to deploy boom in order to protect, deflect or contain oil. We have long promoted using math and science when deploying spill countermeasures not only because it works, but because it’s faster, safer, more effective and it saves time, money and impact. What we’ll focus on in this article is the where of ...

  • Oil recovery reduces sewer cleaning

    Doskocil Food Service Company, a division of Foodbrands America, Hutchinson, Kan., produces 2 million pounds of pizza toppings a week. After cooking, the meat toppings are flash-frozen in one of two spiral freezers. Air currents within the freezer carry grease-containing vapors through the ammonia freezer coils, where they adhere and become lodged. Doskocil uses 1,600 gallons of water per hour to ...

  • Ivey-sol technology has potential to increase oil recovery of oil-sands waste by 15-25 percent

    Alberta’s oil sands are comprised of one of the world's largest sources of bitumen, containing an estimated 1.6 trillion barrels. About two tonnes of oil sands must be dug up and processed to produce one barrel of oil. Oil sands recovery processes include extraction and separation systems to remove bitumen from sand and water. Separating the oil from the sand is difficult and costly, and getting ...

  • Enhanced oil recovery scheme in the sultanate of oman

    The Facility This project is an Enhanced Oil Recovery Field and is located in the South-Central area of the Sultanate of Oman, approximately 660 kilometers from Muscat and 560 kilometers from Salalah. The design requirements for this Development are similar to most self-sufficient oilfields in a remote desert environment. The primary differences are the steam generation and ...

  • Oil Skimmers Inc., resolves waste oil problems

    Companies that provide reusable containers for shipping of materials and finished goods use a combination of processes to clean and restore the containers between uses. This makes for a wastewater stream full of many types of oils from both the residual contents of the containers and the restoring processes themselves. Of course, these oils must be removed from the water before it can be reused ...

  • Used Oil vs. Waste Oil – What’s the difference?

    Nice overview of differences between waste oil and used oil. I had thought most of us had a clear understanding of the difference between these two types of oil waste streams but during a recent ISO audit I encountered a site who labeled all of their used oil as “waste oil”. While these terms sound interchangeable there can be differences in how they are managed. ...

  • Separation and recovery of oil from oily waste materials using anaerobic thermal desrotpion unit technology

    RLC Technologies, Inc.’s Anaerobic Thermal Desorption Unit (ATDU) is an exsitu, non-incineration technology designed to separate hydrocarbons from various matrices including oilfield waste, soil, sludge, sand, filter-cake, tank and tanker bottoms, organic-based hazardous waste and contaminated soil in a non-oxidizing atmosphere without destroying the hydrocarbons. This paper briefly ...

  • Liberating contaminants for easy recovery

    The number one challenge associated with most site remediation designs and methodologies is that 90-95 per cent of all environmental contaminants are present in an adsorbed phase onto soil and bedrock surfaces within both saturated and unsaturated zones. Contaminants, including hydrocarbons (LNAPL), chlorinates (DNAPL) and heavy metals, are sorbed onto the substrates and so have reduced mobility ...

  • Oil Skimmers, Inc., solves waste oil problems quickly and easily

    Many types of industrial processes create waste oil, which can be time-consuming and expensive to collect, store, and dispose of. Worse yet, without constant effort to remove them, residual oils can build up and cause hazards, contamination, and machine downtime. In the metals industry, oil waste comes from machinery and components used to make steel and other metals, as well as from cleaning ...

  • Centralised treatment of oil sludge and other industrial waste

    Centralised treatment of various sources of industrial waste has been established in many European countries over the last decade. Many facilities are still equipped with non state of the art technology and therefore cannot fulfil the broad field of applications with regard to industrial waste remediation. econ's international client decided to be one step ahead and erected a new econ industries ...

  • Refinery remediation: fuel recovery and recycling

    Introduction The site is a former refinery that occupied approximately 64 acres of land in West Texas. Refinery operations produced all grades of gasoline, tractor fuels, diesel, distillate products, and fuel oils and operated between 1939 and 1954. As a result of past waste management practices, releases to soils and ultimately ground water occurred, resulting in the formation of a ...

  • Common challenges relative to the use of Decanter Centrifuges for barite recovery in the oil & gas industry

    When centrifuges are properly deployed, they can have dramatic effects on drilling performance. In fact, without them, many of the advances made in drilling would not have been considered achievable. Classically, we believe that centrifuges can achieve two common goals: Reduce the content of drilled fines, specifically colloidal solids, and Perform barite recovery in order to reduce ...

  • Biosurfactants as demulsifying agents for oil recovery from oily sludge – performance evaluation

    The oil producing and petroleum refining industries dispose of a significant amount of oily sludge annually. The sludge typically contains a mixture of oil, water and solid particles in the form of complex slurry. The oil in the waste sludge is inextractible due to the complex composition and complex interactions in the sludge matrix. The sludge is disposed of on land or into surface water ...

  • Water glycol recovery saves over $20,000

    The Problem: At a mid-Michigan automotive supplier, a shutdown was imminent. Accidental cross-contamination between fire-resistant and oil-based hydraulic fluids in a bulk tank left the plant vulnerable to fire. If plant employees topped off or filled their reservoirs from the direct-fill system available at each machine, the risk of a fire propagating in the plant would greatly increase. ...
