Hazardous Waste Treatment and Disposal

The Mick George Group are dedicated to reducing the environmental impact of waste through our innovative hazardous waste treatment and recovery processes.

We are committed to maximising resource recovery for sustainable waste solutions and meeting the individual needs of our customers. Our extensive hazardous waste treatment processes allow us to investigate a variety of disposal options for your waste that are both environmentally friendly and cost-effective.

Permitted to handle 500,000 tonnes of hazardous waste each year by the Environment Agency, we manage to divert more than 60% of those materials away from landfill, with 50,000 tonnes recycled for aggregate production.

Our broad material acceptance criteria allows us to collect, treat and dispose of a large variety of waste streams, both hazardous and non-hazardous wastes, from wide ranging sectors including oil and gas, utilities, chemical, pharmaceutical, agricultural, printing, coating, construction, academic, local authorities, engineering, aerospace, defence.

Hazardous waste can be treated by chemical, thermal, biological, and physical methods; the former three changing the molecular form of the waste material. More details on each can be found below.

Chemical Treatment Methods

Chemical methods include ion exchange, precipitation, oxidation and reduction, and neutralization.

Thermal Treatment Methods

Among thermal methods is high-temperature incineration, which not only can detoxify certain organic wastes but also can destroy them. Special types of thermal equipment are used for burning waste in either solid, liquid, or sludge form. These include the fluidized-bed incinerator, multiple-hearth furnace, rotary kiln, and liquid-injection incinerator. One problem posed by hazardous-waste incineration is the potential for air pollution.

Biological Treatment Methods

Biological treatment of certain organic wastes, such as those from the petroleum industry, is also an option. One method used to treat hazardous waste biologically is called landfarming. In this technique the waste is carefully mixed with surface soil on a suitable tract of land. Microbes that can metabolize the waste may be added, along with nutrients. In some cases a genetically engineered species of bacteria is used. Food or forage crops are not grown on the same site. Microbes can also be used for stabilizing hazardous wastes on previously contaminated sites; in that case the process is called bioremediation.

Physical Treatment Methods

Physical treatment, on the other hand, concentrates, solidifies, or reduces the volume of the waste. Physical processes include evaporation, sedimentation, flotation, and filtration. Yet another process is solidification, which is achieved by encapsulating the waste in concrete, asphalt, or plastic. Encapsulation produces a solid mass of material that is resistant to leaching. Waste can also be mixed with lime, fly ash, and water to form a solid, cementlike product.
