Description of Services:Spent solvents are reclaimed onsite. These spent solvents are piped to a LUWA (thin film evaporator) unit which distills the spent solvent. The vapors are condensed and the distillate is separated from the water in the condensers. The water is primarily reused onsite for cooling. Any excess water is shipped offsite for treatment. A third condenser removes any residual lite ends from the exhaust stream before it is emitted to the atmosphere. The still bottoms are stored in tankage and bulked up as waste derived fuel as described below. The recovered distillate is stored, blended as product, and either returned to one of the generators or sold to market.

The spent solvents that are not readily amenable to reclamation as described above are blended in tankage and shipped offsite as hazardous waste derived fuels. The still bottoms from the reclamation process are blended in with these fuels. Fuels with a heat content greater than 10,000 BTU’s/pound are sent to cement kilns. Fuels with a heat content less than 10,000 BTU’s/pound are sent offsite for incineration or blending elsewhere.
