Oil-wastes in Denmark - volume and disposal; Olieaffald i Danmark - maengder og bortskaffelse

Technical Report:

Abstract

The aim was to clarify the conditions of oil-wastes disposal in Denmark in relation to the amount to be disposed of - and to discover whether any effect of the stricter regulations on oil-waste disposal enforced in 1989 can be observed. Methods of disposal and environmental problems arising from alternative methods of combustion of oil wastes and possible methods of environmentally protective disposal are discussed in detail. Oil wastes in Denmark, primarily in the form of lubricating-oil wastes from industrial processes and ships, amount to roughly 40,000 tons of oily wastes every year. Of this, 14,000 tons (< 40%) were disposed of by the firm Kommunekemi A/S in 1990, so the remainder was disposed of outside this municipal system. The remainder was burned in district heating plants which has economical benefits, but the State loses taxes (50-60 mill. Danish kr. p.a.). Combustion gives emission of heavy metals and chlorine compounds etc. It is recommended that the administrative municipalities insist on registration of oil wastes delivery and receivers. Wastes should be separated according to the grade of pollution, regulations on pollution from their combustion should be more strict, analysis of the wastes` content of heavy metals should take place, and products  More>>

Wastes should be separated according to the grade of pollution, regulations on pollution from their combustion should be more strict, analysis of the wastes` content of heavy metals should take place, and products from combustion of these wastes should be disposed of as chemicals. The risk of dioxin (etc.) production in relation to non-continuous firing with oil wastes should be investigated. Alternatives to combustion in district heating plants, and methods for disposal of the water phase in relation to separation of oil wastes should be found. (AB).}
