With the need for environmentally friendly approaches to waste management becoming increasingly important, Toxfree have implemented a variety of waste management methods that are more efficient than ever before. This allows us to maintain the same effective approach to waste, while producing far less harmful biproducts.
In this blog, we discuss two of the ways we’re making steps to marry environmental relief with high quality waste management.
Waste from energy
Creating something as valuable as energy from something like waste seems too good to be true. Recent advances in technology over the last decade or so have made this concept, coming straight out of a science fiction novel, a reality.
Waste-to-energy facilities convert waste, as it is treated, into a source of energy through incineration, or less typically through gasification and similar thermal processes. This allows for a great deal of energy to be recovered from a process where it is usually wasted, effectively creating free energy for use in a variety of circumstances.
Energy can be created from a wide variety of wastes, many of which are very difficult to treat in normal circumstances – potentially harmful substances such as solvents, drilling muds, oily sludges, dewatered mud and oily adsorbents and filters are among the wastes that can be treated at our plant while producing valuable energy.
New ways to efficiently recycle
Finding efficient methods to recycle goods is another way to ensure an environmentally friendly future. The HazPak 3000 used by Toxfree is one such way to better process waste to ensure a higher return.
This densification system efficiently removes unwanted residues to recover recyclable materials such as steel and paint from waste products, such as used oil filters, paint tins, aerosols and gas cylinders. It is also possible to recover liquid or gaseous residues depending upon the waste stream, with the option to recycle both hazardous and non-hazardous materials, including flammable and corrosive materials, toxic chemicals, and more.
General descriptions include: industrial chemical raw materials, obsolete finished product, defective product, by-products, residue containers, contaminated rags and wipes.
