Specialized Solutions 

With both thermal desorption units and thermal treatment technologies, Republic Services provides regulatory compliant thermal solutions of hazardous and non-hazardous contaminated soils, liquids, sludges and sediments.  

State-of the-Art Thermal Desorption Unit (TDU) 

Republic Services’ technologically advanced TDU recovers valuable organic material from waste to be recycled as fuel in place of consuming virgin fossil fuels – and provides our customers a more sustainable solution to incineration or other management methods for recoverable organic waste.

Managing Recoverable Organic Waste Streams  

Our Thermal Recycling Service offers a unique solution to those in any market sector looking for organic waste recycling/recovery options. Building off of over 10 years of success recycling organic refinery waste, our Subpart-X permit enables us to operate as a Verified Recycler – making your waste streams potentially eligible for exemption from RCRA status while lowering your liability and cost.

Our Capabilities  

Our TDU manages several types of manufacturing and refinery waste, including:

  • Organic-bearing waste from petroleum, petrochemical, ethylene processing and other manufacturing  
  • Organic-bearing liquids, sludges and solids 
  • Metal-bearing catalysts 
  • RCRA listed (K171 and K172), characteristic and non-hazardous catalyst 
  • RCRA exempted (HSM) metal-bearing catalyst 
  • Subpart X permitted
