About us

econ industries provides the most efficient and cleanest solutions to recover resources from special wastes worldwide.

Our VacuDry® technology (vacuum distillation) is designed to safely remove mercury and hydrocarbon pollutions from contaminated soils, recover high-alloyed steel from metal sludge, treat drill cuttings from oil & gas drilling operations and many others.The recovered resources such as oils, alloys and metals can be reuse while water, mercury, NORM, etc can be safely disposed of. Especially the treatment of drill cuttings is beneficial from both an environmental and an economic standpoint, allowing valuable drilling oil to be recovered. econ‘s VacuDry® Technology is able to treat spent catalyst, spent activated carbon, contaminated soils, tank bottoms, sludge from waste water treatment, centrifuge cakes, filter cakes from filter presses, sludge catcher residues (with or without mercury contamination).

Imagine - Zero industrial waste ... !

Recovery of drilling fluid in best quality

Recovery of drilling fluid in best quality

VacuDry® is the only drill cuttings treatment process where drilling fluid can be recovered in its highest-quality form. The recovered fluid fulfils the requirement for standard drilling-operations and therefore can be reused, or resold to the drilling industry. The quality is able to remain stable during the VacuDry® process due to:
Vacuum (below 100 mbar(abs))
Absence of oxygen (nitrogen blanketing)
Low temperatures (less than 200 °C)

The integrated solution for oily wastes

The integrated solution for oily wastes

Our VacuDry® technology allows efficient and environmentally friendly treatment of all oily waste streams within a single plant. Due to the conditions under which the waste is treated (low temperature, vacuum and nitrogen blanketing), the recovered oil can then be reused after treatment.
Sources:
Tank cleaning sludge, oil lagoons, oil pits, sedimentation ponds, solid phase from centrifugation, contaminated sites, refineries.

Remediation of soil and building rubble

Remediation of soil and building rubble

Contaminated soil and building-rubble can be efficiently treated with VacuDry® technology, including a diverse range of toxic and hazardous substances. VacuDry® units also have low emissions and low power consumption, making on-site treatment with our mobile units both economically and environmentally sound. Contaminants: dioxins, PCB, PAH, TPH, furans, hydrocarbons (oil), chlorinated organic compounds, organic lead, mercury compounds (tetraethyl lead), residues from petrochemical processes.

News & Innovations

Purification and volume reduction of radioactive NORM waste with VacuDry® 

NORM doesn’t sound like a big thing. But Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material might let the alarm bells ring. Everyone has heard of “radioactive material” and that sounds dangerous. However, most of this material is trapped deep in the ground beneath our feet. From there it reaches the surface, for example via the water cycle. Another possible pathway for NORM to reach the light of day is together with the so-called drilling mud during the drilling for energy commodities such as oil and gas. The good news: The low-level radioactive substances are not comparable with man-made nuclear waste. But to be able to completely rule out a harmful effect from NORM sludge it must be disposed of safely. Legally, this is only possible if the waste is free from other compounds such as water, oil or mercury. At this point econ’s VacuDry® technology can help clean the waste and also reduce its volume for disposal.

If heavy drilling equipment penetrates such layers in search of oil and natural gas, these radioactive substances come to the surface as part of the drilling mud. It is increasingly difficult to find safe and sustainable disposal options. Due to environmental and health considerations, NORM Waste, which is impacted by water, drilling oil and other contaminants such as mercury cannot easily be disposed of without prior treatment.
This is where econ’s VacuDry® technology can provide a solution. The vacuum distillation process separates all liquid and volatile components such as water, hydrocarbons or mercury effectively from the radioactive waste. The nuclides themselves or the intensity of the radiation is not affected through the process but the volume of the polluted material is significantly reduced. The dry and clean NORM waste is stabilized with cement to prevent the material from leaching and is disposed of safely.
VacuDry® is not only a great help in current drilling projects in the oil and gas industry. It can also be utilized to treat previously deposited drilling muds in order to eliminate the risk to human health and the environment from the contained naturally occurring radioactive material.
