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-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.
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.

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 risks, high...
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 of the...
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 risks....
There is a requirement for many small boiler operators to monitor Opacity to determine the smoke density emitted from the boiler. On small boilers we recommend the DCEM 1001 Opacity monitor; this simple, low cost monitor has high efficiency air purges use compressed air to ensure that optical surfaces are virtually free of dust or debris contamination. This ensures minimal maintenance is required on the sensors.
Machine condition monitoring based on oil analysis has become an important, if not mandatory, maintenance practice by the marine industry. An effective oil analysis program will keep important assets such as engines, gearboxes, hydraulic systems, turbines, compressors, generators and any other oil-wetted machinery in operation by reducing unexpected failures and costly unscheduled down time.
Residues containing oil are created wherever oil is extracted or processed. Flottweg decanters, Tricanter, separators and systems offer an environmentally friendly solution to the following applications in the processing industry: Processing of sand washing water and gravel wash water. Cleaning wastewater and exhaust gases in steelworks. Cleaning and processing of tar in coking plants. Processing of wastewater containing oil. Processing of oil sludge from ponds and lagoons. Processing of residues containing oil...
A huge percentage of populations worldwide are affected by infections acquired from hospitals. Infections generated from hospitals are a major challenge to public healthcare systems. In order to avoid the risk of infections it is necessary to ensure the hospitals are properly disinfected and sanitized. The most common methods of sanitizing is with the use of disinfectant solutions. Contaminated surfaces are sources of infections and require care of high level of compliance with recommended hand hygiene policies...
Production of oil and gas is usually accompanied by the usage and production of large volumes of water in several applications. The industry recognizes its dependency on water and is focused on minimizing its use, enhancing reuse and recycling opportunities, and improving treatment technologies and disposal options. Lenntech provides sustainable complete solutions for water and waste water treatment in oil and gas industry considering a wide range of technologies and strategies.
The crushing of cans such as, for example, paint cans, food cans, oil cans or beverage cans serves, on the one hand, for recycling the raw materials and at the same time contributes to the protection of the environment, because part of the recycled raw materials can be reused, but also, on the other hand, for the volume reduction.
Few industries attract the attention of the public as does the oil & gas industry with its related strategic products (basic materials for the chemical, pharmaceutical, varnish and cosmetics industries). The bringing of oil and gas from their original sources to the consumer, into their final forms, represents one of the most complex chains in the quest to add value to raw materials.
Fossil fuel, hydropower as well as nuclear energy continue to be the world`s predominant energy resources. Increasing efforts are being invested in the securing of new fonts of energy. Extensive industrial research opens a broad variety of new applications for air purification.
Water sustainability has become a significant issue for FMCG companies. Many companies publish information on their water usage and are committed to reducing their carbon and water footprints. Paques’ technologies for treating water and gas can significantly contribute to this aim.
Amine gas treating, also known as amine scrubbing, gas sweetening and acid gas removal, refers to a group of processes that use aqueous solutions of various alkylamines (commonly referred to simply as amines) to remove hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and carbon dioxide (CO2) from gases.
Cleanliness and Disinfection in The food industry are very critical requirements. Disinfection is the process by which microorganisms are killed so that their numbers are reduced to a level which is neither harmful to health nor to the quality of perishable goods. Disinfection is required in food plant operations, where wet surfaces provide favorable conditions for the growth of microbes.
