The fuel blending process blends acceptable waste materials for useful Energy Recovery. Fuel blending facilities take hazardous and non hazardous wastes, and blend them into a material used as a fuel source in cement kilns and by other manufacturers or energy generation facilities. These kilns operate at temperatures in excess of 2500 degrees Fahrenheit, providing complete thermal destruction while recovering energy and mineral components within the waste. This process does not produce any additional waste.
LEL uses fuel blending of qualified hazardous and non-hazardous waste streams to help clients reduce liabilities and ensure regulatory compliance.
Fuel Blended Waste Includes:
- Flammable Solvents
- Paints and Coatings
- Paint Thinners
- Petroleum Products
- Contaminated Oils
- Water Contaminated with Organic Solvents
Environmental Benefits Include:
- A reduction in the amount of material sent to landfills.
- Incinerators produce fly ash and bottom ash that must be disposed of generally in a toxic waste landfill due to the heavy metal concentration. With fuels blending, the complete thermal destruction of waste captures mineral components in the final products.
