Recovered waste oil continues to be a central aspect of the recycling activity at Malary’s Cottenham process facility. Advanced modern centrifuges separate the oil content from any contaminants, and further processing ensures high grade recovered oil stock. We also major in the recovery of oil from oily rags using bespoke and unique separation processes. These are complemented by further refinement processes to produce a high grade recycled product. Meanwhile used industrial and automotive oil filter cannisters are crushed to extract the oil content. This is further refined while the metal casings are sent for re-smelting into further products. The crushed filter made from cardboard and other materials is dried and processed into SRF (Solid Recovered Fuel) along with rag waste.
Constant laboratory monitoring of each oil recovery and crushed rags/filters process means we deliver a high level of quality consistency for all our recycled products. Various blends of the recycled oil are produced to prescribed calorific and quality parameters. These become high-specification fuel oils for heating and other industrial purposes. The dry SRF waste becomes a valuable-heat producing material widely used in cement kilns and in industry. The value of these helps offset the initial waste collection or waste acceptance charges, delivering the keenest prices for our customers. This in turn keeps their overall energy costs to an absolute minimum.
Both bulk loads and drummed loads of waste oils and oil-contaminated items are regularly accepted, including waste oily rags. Similar oil recovery options can be applied to damaged oil containers, while drums and IBCs are decontaminated and washed for return to the supply chain.
The correct disposal of waste oil and contaminated items is essential for customers to meet their legal and environmental obligations. Equally as important, particularly in the current economic environment, is the ability to extract maximum economic value from these wastes. With the option to either collect your waste oil ourselves or receive it at our processing centre, customers can enjoy full disposal flexibility with the keenest pricing maintained the balance of our recycling abilities . Naturally these are backed by the proven operating standards for which we are fully certified.
