A New Environmental Opportunity

The Current State of Waste-Disposal Practices

The disposal of E&P waste is a complex process that must be carefully managed to protect human health and the environment. There are a variety of methods for waste disposal, including landfilling, injection, and ocean disposal. In these processes, mixed cuttings are washed with water to reduce salinity for stockpiling. The liquids are then injected into disposal wells or directly into old salt mines. This method is harmful to the environment and concerning to operators and environmental agencies.

The logistics of transporting and disposing exempt wastes remain environmentally risky and of concern to operators and environmental agencies, and all environmental liabilities caused by third-party disposals remain with operators. No alternative disposal methods are presently available, except Clean Waste.

Landfilling E&P waste example

Landfilling E&P waste can pose a risk to human health and the environment – it can contain hazardous chemicals that can leach into groundwater and pollute air and soil. Pictured above is a waste-management site near a residential area in Grand Bois, Louisiana, along the Bourg-Larose Highway.

Responsible Measures

Clean Waste employs proprietary methods and technologies to recover and recycle E&P waste streams and process them into materials that can be reused. Clean Waste is proud to offer services that significantly reduce the environmental impact and transportation risks of traditional waste-disposal methods while creating an opportunity for recycling its components into beneficial, reusable products.

Clean Waste is proud to have several permits to process exempt E&P waste.
