Oil Re-refining

By recovering and repurposing off-spec product from tank-cleaning projects and slop oil emulsions, we can guarantee a zero-waste designation.

Service Details

Large batches? No problem. A 5,000-barrel receiving tank helps us keep up with demand, and our two state-of-the-art Tricanter centrifuges were built to handle materials with high solids. Each maintains a nitrogen blanket and is completely gastight, keeping our site safe.

Materials managed

  • Tank heels from terminal operations and refineries
  • High-solid content oils, like slurry oils and crude oils
  • Emulsion and rag layers from slop tanks
  • Barge strippings

Why CIRCON Sustainability is a Better Way

Our advanced recovery facility has been awarded the EPA's 2911 Oil Bearing Hazardous Secondary Material exclusion status, a powerful exemption that allows us to ship materials and products to and from refineries on a bill of lading, avoiding RCRA designation. It all makes our path to recovering valuable materials and creating new sources of power for our industry simpler, more efficient, and more sustainable.

In the last five years, we've recovered more than 400,000 barrels of off-spec materials for zero-landfill disposal.
