Our Paisley site marks Augean’s entry into the Scottish waste market. Currently operating as a Hipod processing centre for the UK, where the waste contents, generally oil contaminated rags and wipes, are segregated from other recyclable wastes and put into a washing process which cleans them leaving a non-hazardous material for landfill disposal or energy recovery. The contaminated water is processed through the site’s effluent treatment plant.
The effluent treatment plant treats other contaminated waters generated at the site as well as incoming wastes delivered in containers or bulk (tanker). The plant has tank storage capacity and the process is equipped with a centrifuge to remove solids contamination from waste waters before they are discharged through the sites sewer discharge point.
The oil plant takes waste oils and oil sludges removing solids contamination and removing water in heated tanks to produce cleaner oil which is sent off site for further processing at Avonmouth or sites external to the group where it eventually will be used in secondary liquid fuel or support fuel for combustion based manufacturing processes (e.g. for cement manufacture). Further processing off site allows some oils to be broken down into its component parts and be reused.
Sludges generated from this process can be sent to Port Clarence for processing through indirect thermal desorption (ITD) or through its own infra red heat treatment process (IR) which will be commissioned shortly. Both ITD and IR are controlled heating processes which drive off and capture oil from oil sludges leaving an oil free residue which can be landfilled.
The site is also the base for a number of specialist industrial services vehicles offering tank cleaning and jetting services with disposal of wastes generated through this function being available on site.
