High Cost of Oil Drives
Interest in Oil Skimming
With oil prices at a record high and experts saying that crude
oil may stabilize at $100 per barrel, manufacturing companies are
now thinking about the profitability of recovering oil from their
wastewater. Instead of paying for costly disposal of oily
wastewater, plants can reclaim the oil using an oil skimmer
and sell the recovered oil to a recycler or burn the oil to lower
energy costs. After it has been separated using oil skimming
equipment, the wastewater may be reused in industrial processes or—in many cases—released into municipal sewer systems without
paying a surcharge. See complete story.
