ChemCare Thermaldyne

Sustainable and efficient oil reclamation services

The most sustainable solution for oil bearing materials

ChemCare® and Thermaldyne have partnered to offer refineries access to the largest thermal desorption and separation plant in the USA. Focused solely on treating refinery materials, our services are designed to help your plant increase its sustainability by diverting your oil bearing materials from landfills to our plant, where they will be treated using our compliant, clean and efficient reclamation processes.

Redefining oil reclamation

Thermaldyne recovers oil and oil bearing materials that were historically disposed of, and turns them into renewable energy and non-hazardous materials. In order to provide the most sustainable and comprehensive treatment of oil bearing materials, Thermaldyne employs a proprietary approach to treat all areas of your materials:

Solids: our process allows us to recycle reusable solids with zero incineration, leveraging our indirect thermal desorption technology. We also recover metals throughout our process.

Water: we safely treat all water utilized or separated in our process.

Oils and catalysts: our technology separates and dewaters the oil within the materials, allowing us to reclaim oil and catalyst more efficiently and effectively than any other methodology.

Complete transparency and peace of mind

Your work with Thermaldyne and ChemCare is backed by our complete financial indemnification. We also provide a full documentation trail for your materials with complete transparency from the time your materials arrival at our plant, until the moment the material is recycled and shipped for reuse.
