We have total infrastructure of 3,00,000 sq. ft. with production capacity of around 70,000m3 of slop oils along with 36,000 tons of tank bottom sludge annually. 2 of our pipelines from terminal to main berth 1 are connected with seaport to discharge the slop oils & off spec fuels straight into our storage containers of volume 5,000m3. We have a separate arm for cleaning the offshore vessels and onshore tanks. In addition to this, we also offering maintenance & inspection services through our JV partner for onshore storage tank farms.
Gulf Environment FZE is our recycling facility located in the Port of Fujairah (United Arab Emirates) for slop oil/sludge/waste oils. This plant is specifically designed to handle all hydrocarbon waste that comes from refineries, shipping industries and onshore tank storage facilities in Fujairah. Our facilities also include different types of trucks to cover special needs of customers and large quantity urgency is also resolved by us through discharging with pipelines directly to terminals.
Our company is also operating as an importer and exporter of petroleum products like Fuel Oil IFO 180 & 380 CST, Marine Gas Oil, Industrial Furnace Oil and Special Grade Blends which are processed in Middle East area. All these petroleum products are processed by the reputed vendors in compliance to highest quality standards set by national & international bodies such as Emirates Standardization & Metrology authority. By offering premium quality products which we procure from highly dependable sources, we are able to develop enduring relationships with the clients.
Slop oil/waste oil/oily water: Generally a slop contains 5-98% water content, which is a pumpable product. With the help of our state-of-the-art technology, we are able to remove the water to 0.5% content and re-correct the flashpoints in order to convert the oil into furnace fuel that fits perfectly for power plants, industrial factories and cement plants. We use thermal closed evaporation system for this operation.
Sludge is the residue that remains when fuel or crude oil tanks are cleaned. The cleaning of tanks is carried out for maintenance & inspection purposes of tank and it is done with expert manpower. Slops & Sludges has a major difference because of the amount of their solids in Oil. The solids are predominantly rust & dust only. These can be processed to recover some of the oil present in them. Thus, we use a gradual vibration separation system for removing all contaminants. We recycle the oil & water to collect the left semi-liquid hydrocarbon sediment that is high in calorific value. We forward these products to Lafarge Emirates Cement Company and fed for eliminating their waste to ash. This is unique and one of the most popularizing systems in Middle East for treating the hydrocarbon waste.
Oily Water Treatment is our effluent water treatment plant, which diffuses air system & clarifier for bringing the oil in water below 1ppm level. This makes them valuable for municipality sewage system, construction system and dust suppression in quarrying.
