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.
