Fuel-Blending Services

Fuel blending is a form of recycling for solvent-based liquids, sludges, and solids. Instead of incinerating your solventbased material, it is mixed with other solvent-based waste materials in our fuelblending services to create a fuel that can be burned in cement kilns to manufacture cement. 

Fuels Blending

How does fuels blending work?

Our fuelblending service combines hazardous wastes with other hazardous wastes and fuels to manage commercial waste and to create fuels with certain properties for industrial processes, such as those required by cement kilns and industrial furnaces. The generation of these alternative fuels can help to offset the costs of waste management and to further your business’s sustainability efforts. 

Not all hazardous waste is compatible with the fuelblending process, and those that are must be blended to EPA specifications. Thus, hiring experienced and highly qualified waste management professionals is of the utmost importance in keeping your business regulation compliant at the local, state, and federal levels. 

Typical waste streams:

  • Oilbased paints 
  • Paint thinners
  • Lacquer thinners
  • Solvents
  • Gasoline
  • Still bottoms
  • Alcohol
  • Acetone
  • Xylene
  • Methyl-Ethyl-Ketone (MEK)
  • Solvent Waste

What are the benefits?

Cost-Effective Disposal

The main benefits of fuels blending are that it is a cheaper method of disposal than incineration and it conserves coal and other fossil fuels by using the waste as a fuel.

Conservation of Resources

Because you are using the hazardous wastes for another purpose, fewer new resources are consumed during fuel blending. Take cement production for example. This process usually requires significant amounts of oil, coal, and other fossil fuels. With fuels blending, these kinds of resources are not necessary in the same amounts, as a portion of the needed fuel has been recycled. 

Fuels Blending and Waste Management

As an added benefit, this process also reduces the company’s liability for RCRA-regulated wastes. Since the hazardous waste is being used for a new purpose and will be removed as it is consumed, there is less waste that requires disposal.
