Title: Refinery sludge treatment/hazardous waste minimization viade hydration and solvent extraction

Abstract

The patented Carver-Greenfield (C-G) Process{sup R}, a combination of dehydration and solvent extraction treatment technologies, has a wide range of uses in separating hydrocarbon solvent-soluble hazardous organic contaminants indigenous oil from sludges, soils, and industrial wastes. The C-G Process was demonstrated on spent oily drilling fluid as part of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Superfund Innovative Technology Evaluation (SITE) Program. This paper summarizes the use of the C-G Process for economical treatment and minimization of hazardous refinery wastes, reviews the SITE program results, and describes extending the C-G Process technology to treatment of other wastes. Estimated treatment costs are presented. 4 refs., 1 fig., 6 tabs.
