Sustainability

Sustainability and Your Carbon Footprint

The total amount of greenhouse gases produced to directly and indirectly support human activities, usually expressed in equivalent tons of carbon dioxide (CO2).

Waste transportation is one of the most impacting activities in the calculation of carbon footprint. It is considered that 1 gallon of diesel fuel consumed produces 2.77 KG of carbon dioxide.Carbon-Footprint

There are no other facilities serving the western United States similar to Temarry’s “True Recycling” “Closed Loop” system. By utilizing hazardous waste solids to convert to energy to power solvent recovery stills, the carbon footprint is sharply reduced. By returning recycled technical grade solvents back to industry, fewer raw materials are consumed to manufacture new product.

The typical alternative to Temarry is to send hazardous waste to a TSDF in southern CA that “fuel blends” on site. The nearest cement kiln facilities to send fuel blended waste to are in the Midwest. This is demonstrated by an H061 handling code on the manifest. H061 means fuel blended to be consumed off site. By contrast, for each 20 cubic yard boxes thermally treated on site at Temarry, one cubic yard of ash is generated. For each 100 gallons of typical solvents distilled, 30 gallons of still bottoms are generated to be blended with ash. This represents a dramatic reduction in the number of truck loads that are transported off site for secondary recycling at a cement kiln.

How Much Carbon Footprint Are You Leaving Behind?

Most business are unaware of the carbon footprint they create. Once their hazardous waste is past on to a transportation company for disposal, any thought of a carbon footprint responsibility is usually long gone.

However, by using appropriate disposal facilities like Temarry, reducing the amount of carbon footprint your waste could potentially contribute to can be significantly reduced.
