  • NORM Waste Plants for Oil and Gas Industry - Oil, Gas & Refineries - Oil

    NORM Waste Plants for Oil and Gas Industry

    Natural Occurring Radioactive Material consists of materials enriched with radioactive elements found in the environment. They are usually brought to the surface by oil and gas exploration or mining. NORM wastes can be treated in a VacuDry® unit in order to prepare it for a safe sub earth disposal.

  • Drill Cuttings Plants For Oil and Gas Industry - Oil, Gas & Refineries

    Drill Cuttings Plants For Oil and Gas Industry

    Common drilling procedures for oil and gas, used widely around the world, produce a consistently increasing amount drill cuttings containing oil. In some cases, drill cuttings even contain other hazardous components such as mercury or NORM (Natural occurring Radioactive Material), requiring special attention. Treatment of drill cuttings is therefore beneficial from both an environmental and an economic standpoint, allowing valuable drilling oil to be recovered, and ensuring environmentally sound disposal...

  • Oily Waste Plants for Oil and Gas Industry - Oil, Gas & Refineries

    Oily Waste Plants for Oil and Gas Industry

    Wherever oil is produced, processed, transported or stored, our clients face large amounts of oily waste in many different forms. Our VacuDry technology allows efficient and environmentally friendly treatment of all oily waste streams within a single plant. Due to the conditions under which the waste is treated (low temperature, vacuum and nitrogen blanketing), the recovered oil can then be reused after treatment.

  • Mercury Waste Plants for Oil & Gas Industry - Oil, Gas & Refineries

    Mercury Waste Plants for Oil & Gas Industry

    Mercury-contaminated wastes are a major challenge for many industries including the chlorine industry, oil & gas drilling, oil & gas refineries (catalysts) and fluorescent lamps recycling. Due to strict legal restrictions and HSE requirements, mercury-contaminated waste is required to be handled with special care. We at econ industries have the best solution for each specific mercury waste stream, with plants that are recognised as being state of the art from approval authorities worldwide.<...

  • Soil Remediation Plants for Soil and Groundwater Industry - Soil and Groundwater - Site Remediation

    Soil Remediation Plants for Soil and Groundwater Industry

    Contaminated soil and building-rubble can be efficiently treated with VacuDry technology, including a diverse range of toxic and hazardous substances. VacuDry units also have low emissions and low power consumption, making on-site treatment with our mobile units both economically and environmentally sound.

  • Metal Sludge Plants for Oil and Metal Industry - Metal

    Metal Sludge Plants for Oil and Metal Industry

    Grinding-swarf from the metal processing industry may contain metal alloys, stainless-steel and high-alloyed steel, all of which are ideal input-materials VacuDry unit. The absence of oxygen in the VacuDry process prevents any changes in the chemical structure of the oil, emulsions or metals during the treatment. The output material can later be sold at high prices.

  • Hazardous waste treatment solutions for oil and gas industry - Oil, Gas & Refineries

    Hazardous waste treatment solutions for oil and gas industry

    There are a wide amount of applications for our VacuDry® process within the oil and gas industry. A large variety of wastes and by-products that are generated in the oil & gas production chain can be treated effectively and sustainably. In past decades, numerous thermal desorption processes have been implemented worldwide, using a variety of heating chamber designs to separate hydrocarbons from the mineral solids. Such standard TDUs work under atmospheric pressure which can lead to safety...

  • Hazardous waste treatment solutions for chlorine industry - Chemical & Pharmaceuticals

    Hazardous waste treatment solutions for chlorine industry

    The mercury cell process is a formerly widely-used production technique for the production of chlorine and caustic soda. The liquid metal, mercury, acts as cathode (negative pole) in this process. In the past, the loss of mercury during the process (to air, soil and water) led to serious health and environmental problems. Therefore, most European chlorine producers have decided to phase out the mercury cell process by 2020. Nevertheless, even today, almost 6000 tons of mercury is used per year for chlorine...

  • Hazardous waste treatment solutions for metal industry - Metal

    Hazardous waste treatment solutions for metal industry

    Sludge by-products from the metalworking industry have a high potential for recycling. Prolonged grinding processes can generate large amounts of highly valuable, alloy-rich sludge; consisting of metal powder and cooling lubricants. Inside our VacuDry system, the thermal separation of the liquids (hydrocarbons, eventually water) and solids (metal powder) takes place in an oxygen free atmosphere. This absence of oxygen ultimately eliminates material degradation by oxidation, and self-ignition or explosion...

  • Hazardous waste treatment solutions for site remediation - Soil and Groundwater - Site Remediation

    Hazardous waste treatment solutions for site remediation

    The contamination of soils as a result of prior chemical production can often be unpredictable and diverse. The majority of such pollutants will require an ex-situ treatment method. Many of our VacuDry units can be used for direct-feeding contaminated soils. To reduce the input amount for thermal treatment, the VacuDry units can also be used in combination with soil-washing plants: In this case, customers only feed the high polluted fractions and screened fines (e.g. below 10 mm), as well as the filter-cake...
