Indiscriminate disposal of liquids can result not only in large fines, but also in some cases jail sentences. An overall spill and leak control program is indispensable and mandated by law. Of first importance is the identification and classification of liquids in order to separate those that are hazardous from those that are not. Consulting the Material Safety Date Sheet (MSDS) supplied by the manufacturer can best do this. This could show the degree and type of hazard of the product. In many cases, legal disposal methods are also indicated. A large number of formerly hazardous compounds have been reformulate to be non-hazardous and in some case biodegradable.
Of prime importance is to avoid mixing non-hazardous liquids with hazardous types. When this is done ALL the liquid becomes hazardous with concurrent higher disposal cost. So the segregation of hazardous and non-hazardous liquids is essential. Once the identification of a nonhazardous liquid is established, a method of containment and collection is needed. The use of the OMNI STOP-IT!™ Sorbent Booms and particulate for spills & leaks on land is the most efficient means. OMNI SorbaSolv™ in boom, pillow and particulate will collect and retain non-aqueous liquids on water or mixed with water. Both of these products are based on biodegradable recycled cellulose fibers. When the liquid is extracted, by using a wringer or compression device, less than 10% liquid is retained, allowing for reuse in the work place. Saturated socks can be used in conjunction with a waste-to-energy program.
Oil/water mixtures are best separated by standing and in some cases the addition of a demulsifier. Organics that float can be collected using SorbaSolv™ on the surface or at the bottom , retained by a weight, for heavier organics. Residual oils in water maybe best removed by passing through a bed of SorbaSolv™particulate as a filter media.
ALWAYS CHECK WITH LOCAL AUTHORITIES BEFORE SWERING ANY LIQUIDS! Oils, grease and other suitable organics are best entered into a fuel oil program. See the OMNI SPILL DISPOSAL CHART for more specific information.
DISPOSE OF ALL WASTES IN ACCORDANCE WITH LOCAL, STATE and FEDERAL REGULATIONS.
