CSG Give a Boost to Oil Recovery

14 December 2012 by CSG

Waste Managers Cleaning Service Group (CSG) has given the emulsified oil processing facility at its Coventry treatment plant a £180,000 boost.

CSG collects and processes thousands of tons of oily water wastes each year and the newly refurbished plant at Coventry has been designed to provide environmental benefits by reducing the amount of heat wasted and fuel used during the recovery process. Additionally the recovered oil is of a higher grade and therefore more useable as an industrial fuel.

Included in the £180,000 spend are the installation of heat exchangers, fitting a more economic heating system and additional insulated tanks, increasing storage capacity to allow a longer time for the oil to separate out.

Much of the waste oily water is delivered to Coventry by the company’s fleet of specialist tankers following the emptying of interceptors, tanks and drainage systems at commercial and industrial facilities such as engineering plants and garage forecourts, mainly around the Midlands.

CSG Coventry is one of six oil treatment plants operated by CSG; all are ISO14001 accredited and the company has an on-going programme of developments designed to improve their environmental performance.

CSG, which is one of the UK waste industry’s fastest growing companies, operate a nationwide network of specialist treatment facilities for solid and liquid wastes as well as what is believed to be the UK’s largest hazardous waste treatment and recovery facility at Cadishead, Manchester.
