Hydrocarbon Recycling

Although refining and manufacturing generates byproducts, not all byproducts should be considered waste. In fact, many byproducts can be recycled for use within the facility that generated them or remarketed to outside customers. This includes hydrocarbons from petroleum refining.

Waste Management can help turn your hydrocarbon byproducts into valuable assets. We have the technology and facilities to capture, process and recycle a range of hydrocarbon byproducts, including:

  • Petroleum wastes
  • Gasoline wastes
  • Metal catalysts
  • Non-chlorinated solvents
  • Tank bottoms and sludges
  • Sewer sludges
  • Bundle sludges
  • Refinery K and F- listed wastes
  • Petroleum based paint wastes

We can also recycle:
