Northburn Builds Scotlands Only Oil Re-refining Plant

Northburn have just been issued a PPC permit for their Coatbridge waste oil treatment plant to recycle / re-refine waste oils. The plant itself is currently being upgraded to recycle waste oils using BAT (Best Available Techniques) which to our knowledge will make us the only waste oil plant in the UK to use condenser systems for the thermal treatment of waste oils keeping any emissions from waste oil treatment to a minimum.

Similarly, abatement systems comprising of carbon filters are being fitted to storage vessels for waste oil to abate any potential emissions. The plant will emit no emissions from waste oil treatment to the atmosphere which can only be good for the environment, not only will we be able to totally recycle waste oils but have minimised the environmental impact of doing it.


Special Waste Regulations (Hazardous Waste)

Any waste with hazardous properties making it harmful to humans or the environment is classified as Hazardous waste. Identifying hazardous waste is a difficult subject. SEPA provide a guidance document on this matter: Hazardous Waste: Interpretation fo the definition and classification of hazardous waste.

Procedures for disposing, carrying and receiving special waste are contained in the Special Waste Regulations 1996. These regulations are the principal piece of legislation covering special waste in Scotland.
