CIRCON featured in The Engineering 100
The Engineering 100 featured CIRCON in its Breakthroughs column for our innovative waste-to-fuel process, which brings oil refinery waste to cement makers to use in place of coal. Because the cement kilns operate as such high temperatures, the oil refinery waste burns completely, eliminating the need to send ash to landfill.
Senior VP of Business Development Gary Higginbotham says CIRCON collects over 120 million pounds of waste annually from refiners like Phillips 66, Marathon Oil, Valero and ExxonMobil. If that went to an incinerator, 50% would go into the dump as ash.
