BLENDABLE ORGANIC WASTE
NSSI provides competitive pricing for the treatment and disposal of organic and aqueous chemical waste materials.
Fuel blenders are limited in their selection of wastes for "fuel" blending, as wastes selected must provide a minimum of 5,000 BTU per pound so that when blended for burning as "fuel", the final waste will provide not less than 8,000 BTU per pound. All NSSI blended wastes are sent to commercial facilities permitted for "incineration" rather than for burning as "fuel". As a result, the "fuel" BTU restriction does not limit the types of solvent and water wastes NSSI accepts for waste blending.
NSSI can therefore provide for the blending and incineration of
pump able organic solvents and aqueous streams at a very competitive cost.
NSSI allows up to 50% water by weight and does not require that received waste streams meet any minimum BTU content. Aqueous wastes exceeding 50% water content by weight are acceptable with excess water surcharges.
Halogen content is not a cost factor below 5% halogen (non-fluorinated). Halogen
wastes including fluorinated wastes are accepted up to 100% with appropriate surcharges.
The solids content of liquid waste is also a factor in pricing. The solids content is measured as suspended solids and settled solids. Settled solids are determined by measuring the depth of the solids.
Suspendable solids are measured by centrifuging a representative sample of the liquid layer.
The metals content of blendable waste streams is very important as any metals contained
may become an ingredient of the incineration facility's solid, liquid, or gaseous effluent.
To assure that wastes received are in fact the wastes quoted, NSSI requires that a generator complete a waste profile defining all of the parameters of
their waste and to support the profile with analytical results or knowledge of the process generating the waste. NSSI compares the received waste to the generator prepared profile.
