Waste Processing and Minimization
Safe, Cost-Effective, Environmentally Compliant On-site Processing
Depending on customer requirements, material from the tank is often processed on-site to minimize waste and reduce disposal costs. Evergreen offers a variety of processing techniques. Belt presses and filter presses are used to dewater aqueous sludges, while highvolume decanter centrifuges are employed for oily sludges.
High-speed centrifuges used by Evergreen generate force 2,000 times greater than gravity to separate solids and liquids at a molecular dry waste for disposal and clarified effluent ready for re-use.
Although other service companies use centrifuges, Evergreen Specialists have a level of expertise that yields exceptional results– keeping waste management, transportation and disposal costs to a minimum.
Safety and the Environment
The hazardous nature of tank cleaning demands the most stringent standards for safety. For Evergreen, safety begins with pre-project planning that includes hazard mitigation steps and continues with API-certified tank entry supervisors, rigorous daily Job Safety Analysis requirements and more. Crew members are trained according to the highest industry standards, including 40-hour HAZWOPER and OSHA training.
Evergreen has an award-winning safety record, including NPRA Contractor Merit Awards, Industrial Safety Training Council Safety Awards, and OSHA Voluntary Protection Programs (VPP) Star status.
Evergreen also keeps environmental protection at the forefront of operations. Containment procedures and strict jobsite housekeeping prevent accidental spills. Effective material processing not only reduces waste, but also makes liquid components available for re-use by the plant. Vapor-tight tank cleaning controls emissions, while all degassing and vapor recovery services meet or exceed local, state and federal regulations.
