Drill cuttings and oil waste plant installed directly at the oilfield

TDP-2 pyrolysis plant designed for drilling waste treatment was installed at oilfield of oil and gas company. The plant is capable to obtain the valuable products from oil sludge thus there is no need in waste depositing.

Siemens and Southern Idaho Solid Waste announce commissioning of landfill gas-to-energy project

Siemens and Southern Idaho Solid Waste announce the commissioning of landfill gas-to-energy project

  • Siemens gas engines generating electrical power from landfill gas to provide energy for approximately 2,000 homes in Idaho

  • Two engines convert 1,000 tons of landfill waste daily into energy

  • The project marks successful use of Siemens’ highly-energy-efficient engines to capture and use methane

Siemens and Southern Idaho Solid Waste (SISW) recently announced the successful commissioning of two SGE-56HM gas engines that are providing environmentally friendly electrical power for a landfill gas-to-energy project at the Milner Butte Landfill in Burley, Idaho. Siemens’ gas capture engines are helping to convert 1,000 tons of landfill waste daily into energy but SISW officials expect that amount to increase in the near future.

Decomposing waste gives off massive amounts of greenhouse gases, especially methane. SISW engineers worked with Siemens and Siemens’ channel partner, Industrial-Irrigation Services, to develop a solution that would capture the methane for use as a fuel gas to produce electricity. “We saw this gas and realized we were just wasting it by burning it for no productive use,” said SISW’s environmental manager, Nate Francisco.

To capture methane and convert it into electricity, the Milner Butte Landfill deployed two Siemens SGE-56HM gas generator sets to run on the waste gas from the landfill and generate electrical power. Once the landfill gas is converted to electricity, it is transported to Idaho Power through a 20-year purchase agreement and is used by the community as a low-cost source of power. To date, the two engines have been generating enough power for approximately 2,000 homes. Each set is rated at
1,300kWe and includes generator controls and a power panel.

Siemens SGE-HM series is purpose-built for landfill gas-to-energy power applications. By incorporating advanced technology and design into the cylinder heads, valves, camshafts, and turbochargers, the SGE-56HM engine provides customers like SISW with a high-performing low-operating-cost solution.

“We expect these engines to remain in operation for 20 to 30 years,” said Josh Bartlome, executive director at SISW. “They’re big engines built for endurance.”

SISW estimates that within the next 20 years the facility will generate approximately $36 million in revenue, netting about a third of that after costs and inflation. Creating a long-term revenue generator like this model used by SISW will allow the District to realize lower power costs.

“The Milner Butte Landfill project represents the future of distributed power,” said Chris Nagle, North American Regional Director for Siemens Gas Engines business. “This plant assists the local community with its power needs while being environmentally responsible. Siemens is proud to support SISW and Industrial-Irrigation Services with this project.”

ExxonMobile Joins The Recycling Partnership With $1.5 Million Commitment

Global energy leader supports sustainability through proven recycling solutions

FALLS CHURCH, VA (April 9, 2018) – Global leader ExxonMobil is the first energy company to join The Recycling Partnership, a rapidly growing national nonprofit that leverages corporate investment to transform recycling for good in hundreds of communities across the country. Through support and collaboration, ExxonMobil, along with 34 other companies including Coca-Cola, Target, Amazon, Pepsi, Starbucks and P&G, is helping The Recycling Partnership create a sustainable future through recycling.

“We’re pleased to welcome ExxonMobil to The Partnership,” says Keefe Harrison, CEO of The Recycling Partnership. “Their $1.5 million investment in our organization shows a dedicated commitment to help us deliver measurable and sustainable change to peoples’ everyday lives through improved recycling system solutions. As our first energy industry partner, ExxonMobil recognizes that collaboration, across and within industries, is a key to building sustainable communities.”

In just four short years, The Recycling Partnership has reached 33 million households in 640 communities, which is almost a quarter of the U.S. population through its efforts to improve recycling access and increase the quality of recyclables. Since 2014, the nonprofit has leveraged $29 million in infrastructure diverting a total of 115 million pounds of recyclables from landfills, avoiding 164,000 metric tons of greenhouse gas and saving 2.0 trillion BTUs.

“At ExxonMobil, we believe our fundamental purpose is to help improve peoples’ lives and empower human progress,” says Dave Andrew, vice president of sustainability at ExxonMobil. “We are committed to providing sustainable solutions that make modern life possible so future generations can thrive. Expanding community access to efficient recycling systems is a priority for us, and we are very excited to be a part of the great work The Recycling Partnership is doing in this area.”

The Recycling Partnership’s goal is to help every family in America recycle and recycle well, so that the country can double its current recycling rate and capture 22 million more tons of recyclables per year, avoid 50 million metric tons of greenhouse gas annually, and save $250 million in contamination costs every year.

“Thanks to our partnership with global companies like ExxonMobil, which recognize the value of supporting our sustainability mission, we will be able to move closer to making the circular economy mainstream,” says Harrison. “We will also be able to have a much larger impact on the health of our planet and peoples’ everyday lives now and in the future.”

About The Recycling Partnership
The Recycling Partnership (www.recyclingpartnership.org) is a national nonprofit organization that leverages corporate partner funding to transform recycling for good in cities and towns all across America. As the only organization in the country that engages the full recycling supply chain from the corporations that manufacture products and packaging to local governments charged with recycling to industry end markets, haulers, material recovery facilities, and converters; The Recycling Partnership positively impacts recycling at every step in the process. By the end of 2018, The Recycling Partnership expects to have served 750 communities with tools, resources and technical support, provided 500,000 recycling carts, reached 40 million households, and helped companies and cities invest more than $33 million in recycling infrastructure.
