Commissioned in the spring of 2009, this 54" diameter ATDU system was put into operation in a Petronor oil refinery located in northern Spain. The facility proceses refinery waste from a local centrifuge system as well as biological solids with a high moisture content. The RLCT plant has been in continual use and remains in use today, processing these waste streams. RLC Technologies provided on site support and training during the commissioning period of this equipment and continues to support the operation by providing technical knowledge as needed, and procuring spare parts for our customer.

RLC Technologies 84” diameter ATDU system was installed at the Chemical Waste Management Northwest landfill in Arlington, Oregon, processing listed RCRA wastes including tank bottoms and oily sludges. The unit was in operation for more than 10 years before being de-commissioned when the new unit was installed in 2017.

SDS2

USA 2 (SDS2)

Building on the success of SDS-1, RLC Technologies built a new, higher capacity thermal desorption system for the Tradebe SDS-2 expansion in 2014. The unit remains in continuous parallel operation with SDS-1 processing RCRA listed waste streams and converting them into saleable products.

The ATDU facility offers waste generators an effective and cost-efficient method for recycling organic solid waste that might otherwise be disposed of. Prior to this technology, most organic hazardous waste solids were incinerated in a process designed to destroy the organic content by driving off volatiles and burning excess gases. Alternatively, the ATDU technology extracts the organics from hazardous waste solids to recover viable chemical products.

Most organic solids can be processed, including paint waste, solvent soaked rags, resins, polymers, production debris, refinery waste and discared commercial products. So long as the material is recycled, the process is exempt from Resource Conservation and Recovery Act rules. Rather, once the material has been processed, the generator receives a Certificate of Recycling that affirms the materials have been recycled. The generator then has no further liability.

There are many benefits utilizing this process for organic solid waste. By virtue of receiving a Certificate of Recycling, the material is removed from the solid waste definition in 40CFR261. Putting potentially hazardous chemicals back into industrial process, the environmental friendly process achieves waste minimization and recycling goals by turning waste into a valuable product for industry. Recycled products are now used in numerous industries throughout the US in place of virgin chemicals. The system is even capable of processing materials contained in steel drums and containers, producing recyclable scrap metals for resale.
