Cost-Effective Disposal of RCRA Waste

With over 40 million tons of recycled waste in the U.S. each year, operators are fervently searching for innovative methods to treat and dispose of RCRA wastes.

Vulcan® Systems' thermal desorption technology is a proven method for recycling RCRA wastes in a manner that is efficient, affordable, and compliant with the Resource Conveservation and Recovery Act of 1976. The technology devolatizes hydrocarbons and captures them in a condensor for potential use in fuel blending, while also allowing the delisted end product to be disposed of in a more safe and secure manner.

According to the EPA's website, "[the] EPA tried to develop hazardous waste regulations that balance the conservation of resources, while ensuring the protection of human health and the environment." Vulcan® Systems' technology meets the EPA's regulations to ensure that hydrocarbons can be re-used and, RCRA Waste, now delisted, can be appropriately disposed of without damage to the environment or public health.

At Vulcan®, it's understood that each process may vary based on the material needing to be processed. When choosing Vulcan® Systems for your RCRA Waste processing needs, you can be assured we will perform careful analysis, focus on compliance with regulations, and provide an array of different equipment options, engineered to meet the challenge and surpass your expectations, all while providing a safe, reliable, and simple to operate system.

Learn More About Thermal Desorption

While thermal desorption is often used to treat RCRA Waste that is threatening the environment, calcination can also be used to remove hydrocarbon from oil-based muds (OBMs). Thermal Desorption is one great example of how Vulcan® technology is unique in the industry. Our equipment is able to remove hydrocarbons and other oil-based contaminants safely from materials, allowing for safe re-utilization of the original feed in an appropriate setting.
