Veolia Environmental Services Re-Opens State-of-the-Art Hazardous Materials Reclamation Facility

Stocks in this article: VE

Veolia ES Technical Solutions LLC, the hazardous waste division of Veolia Environmental Services North America (VESNA), today celebrated the re-opening of its hazardous reclamation and treatment facility in West Carrollton, Ohio. An on-site re-opening event played host to international, national and local dignitaries including Richard Burke, President and CEO of Veolia Environmental Services North America, and Jeffrey Sanner, Mayor for the City of West Carrollton. The facility, which was rebuilt following a fire in 2009, incorporates cutting edge technology to reclaim and repurpose hazardous materials, greater than 70% of which comes from businesses in the Ohio Valley.

“We are delighted that this day has finally come,” said Jim Bell, president and CEO of Veolia ES Technical Solutions. “We met with employees 48 hours after the incident and made the commitment that we would rebuild the facility, placing sustainability and safety at the top of our priority list. This new facility is built to the highest industry standards utilizing the most advanced technologies to ensure lower emissions and a safe work environment.”

The West Carrollton facility repurposes and reclaims eight million gallons a year of oils, paints, solvents and other hazardous materials and converts them back into material that can be reused. Many solvents are reclaimed to 99.5% purity, putting West Carrollton at the forefront of the company’s commitment to turning waste into a resource.

Following the 2009 fire, Veolia invested considerable effort and capital into designing a new state-of-the-art reclamation facility from a safety and technological standpoint. All equipment in the new facility, including treatment, processing and transfer equipment are state of the art and align with the most updated building and safety standards for a facility of this type. The use of best available current technology allows for emissions recovery to 98% (the previous system was 90%) and new storage tanks have a 24% increase in capacity to allow for more efficient processing and outbound shipments.
