DEP Issues Permit For Drilling Waste Processor

DEP Issues Residual Waste Processing Permit to New Castle Facility

MEADVILLE -- The Department of Environment Protection today issued a residual waste processing permit to Advanced Waste Services Inc. to treat a variety of industrial wastes, including wastewater from oil and gas well development.

Advanced Waste Services historically had restricted its activities to processing and treating liquid waste and sludge containing oil residues. The company also accepted and treated wastewater from the oil and gas industry.

Because the wastewaters the company processed were directed to the New Castle Sanitation Authority sewage plant for further treatment and discharge, the company was not required to obtain a DEP wastewater discharge permit.

In recent years, though, Advanced Waste Services decided to expand its business and seek more flexibility in the types and quantities of waste it treats. As a result, the company applied for a residual waste processing permit on April 23, 2007.

DEP suspended its review of this application when a major fire destroyed the company’s facility after it submitted the application. Once the company revised the facility’s design, the department resumed its review.

Following past practice, Advanced Waste Services will continue to discharge its processed wastewaters to the New Castle Sanitation Authority sewage treatment plan after the wastewater undergoes pre-treatment on site.
