Managing Recoverable Organic Waste Streams

US Ecology's Thermal Recycling Service offers a unique recycling solution to any market sector that is looking for recoverable organic waste recycling. Building off of over 10 years of success recycling organic refinery waste, our Subpart-X permit enables us to operate as a Verified Recycler making your waste streams potentially eligible for exemption from RCRA status while lowering liability and cost.

Our Thermal Desorption Unit (TDU) manages organic bearing liquids, sludges, solids and other wastes generated by petroleum, petrochemical and manufacturing processes. Our customers can benefit from this technology as a more sustainable and cost-effective solution than incineration and other management methods. 

Our TDU manages several types of refinery waste, including:

  • Petroleum wastes
  • Gasoline wastes
  • Metal catalysts
  • Non-chlorinated solvents
  • Tank bottoms and sludges
  • Sewer sludges
  • Bundle sludges
  • K and F- listed wastes
