Rineco is North America’s largest single site fuel blending disposal provider. Once your wastes are sampled and screened for conformity with our easy to use profile, Rineco’s knowledgeable operations staff processes the material into liquid and solid waste-derived fuels which are used as a secondary fuel source to replace coal and natural gas in cement kilns. This is a safe and effective method of recovering the energy value of the waste and helps conserve our planet’s finite natural resources.
Nearly 20 cement kilns throughout the U.S. use regulated waste as a supplemental fuel. This is covered under U.S. EPA’s Boiler and Industrial Furnace (BIF) regulations. Strict compliance with feed rates, burning zone and stack gas temperatures, continuous emissions and extensive analysis of raw materials and finished products must be followed in order to use this material as a fuel. Since nearly 60% of the cost of manufacturing cement is in the fossil fuels needed to produce temperatures of 3000F, this is a very important factor to the recycling and recovery process. By reusing industrial wastes in cement kilns, generators are given an environmentally sound option for recycling their waste, natural resources are conserved.
Sampling & Tracking:
To ensure absolute compliance, the philosophy behind Rineco’s internal tracking system is the same “cradle to grave” concept as RCRA. When waste material arrives at Rineco, samples are analyzed to ensure conformity with the profile and identified via an individual bar-code identification label. Each label tracks a specific container throughout the blending process and allows us to document the final disposal destination of your material.
Waste is normally processed and destroyed within 5 -6 days of receipt. Your liabilities are greatly minimized by our urgent processing philosophy. This service is unprecedented in our industry. A Certificate of Disposal is issued once the blending process is complete. RCRA empty metal containers are processed through our Container Decontamination Unit (CDU). Once the container is processed, you will receive a Certificate of Recycling for the number of containers and pounds or metal recycled.
Trusting Rineco with your waste management needs means your company’s long term liability exposure is greatly reduced.
