Each year millions of tons of industrial and petrochemical material are generated from the production of fuels, lubricants, and household items we use every day. Thermal desorption is often used in a variety of industries and applications in order to maximize resource recovery and remediation of hydrocarbons from the feedstock.
Thermal desorption is a reclamation process designed to separate hydrocarbons from various types of materials. This process uses heat to reclaim oil and other materials employing a non-contact and non-incineration technology.
Thermal desorption is commonly used to process organic materials such as oil-bearing material from refineries.
By applying heat to contaminated material, the contaminated material (with low boiling points) are forced to turn into a vapor - vapor that can also be collected and treated in an off-gas treatment unit. Removing the wastes allows for contaminated material to be repurposed without any issues of contamination.
Repurposing contaminated material is a great plus, considering landfill space can usually be preserved and the material can simply be replaced instead of being transported offsite.
Thermal desorption can be customized to adapt and meet the throughput and devolatilization temperatures required.
Commonly processed petrochemical material streams include tank bottoms and spent catalyst. Typical material streams such as tank bottoms, and spent catalysts, contain substantial amounts of recyclable hydrocarbons. Many feedstocks, such as spent catalyst, contain metals that can be recycled.
Processing spent catalyst in a thermal desorption unit separates and reclaims the hydrocarbons, reducing the waste for disposal and prepares the solid materials for recovery of the metals.
Thermal desorption technology is a clean, safe, reliable, and efficient solution for managing wastes. Through this process, waste streams are remediated, delisted, and commercially valuable materials recycled - all through a single all-in-one system. This process maximizes the recovery of hydrocarbons and valuable metals from the feedstock while drastically reducing and eliminating the amount of waste requiring landfill disposal.
Thermaldyne recovers oil and oil bearing materials that were historically disposed of, and turns them into renewable energy. In order to provide the most sustainable and comprehensive treatment of oil bearing materials, Thermaldyne employs a proprietary approach to treat all areas of your materials:
Thermaldyne’s process allows us to recycle reusable solids with zero incineration.
We safely manage all water utilized or separated in our process.

Thermaldyne, an environmental solutions company, uses innovative technologies to reclaim oil-bearing materials in a sustainable, clean, and efficient manner that saves a company time, money, and resources. The company’s reclamation plant design separates oil-bearing materials into treated water, reclaimable oil, and recyclable solids. Thermaldyne’s leadership team comprises professionals with decades of experience in the environmental management and oil and gas industries.
Thermaldyne uses a wide variety and range of equipment, including indirect Thermal Desorption Units (TDU) and decanter centrifuges to separate oil bearing material into treated water, reclaimable assets and solids (including metals).
Thermaldyne offers refineries access to the largest thermal desorption and separation plant in the USA. Focused solely on treating refinery materials, our services are designed to help your plant increase its sustainability by diverting your oil bearing materials from landfills to our plant, where they will be treated using our compliant, clean and efficient reclamation processes.
