The Ecorefine


One of the most alarming causes for concern in the world today is the significant increase in hazardous, harmful waste and its mixture. The Ecorefine technology has a solution to this conflict; it is able to recycle 99.995% of all organic waste. It is applicable in many areas and is characterised, among other things, by its ability to clean oil waste. Whether from an oil field contaminated with oil sludge, in an oil tanker thick covered with oil deposits or an oil slick from a disaster at sea: Through a specially developed refining process, these contaminants are purified to almost 100% profitability. In the case of an oil sludge, the oil is refined into diesel and the soil that has been contaminated with additives can be beneficially used as a base material in other industries.


Similarly remarkable achievements are found in many other dangerous and safe waste deposits including:


- Medical Waste

- Chemical Waste

- Food Waste

- Contaminated Soil

- Grinding Sludge

- Organic Waste

- Green Cuttings

- Water Desalinisation

The advantages for our environment and the financial benefits are obvious. The application possibilities are almost unlimited. There is no doubt that Ecorefine technology is the greatest advance in recycling technology, also due to its continuous mode of operation.


The Ecorefine Technology was completed in 1994 - an innovative procedure for purifying soil, which is contaminated by pollutants or mixed with other materials (e.g. mill scale sludge) in "on-site operation”. This purpose-built system can be operated mobile and stationary. This procedure is based on vacuum evaporation, which allows time-saving, quick decontamination without using any additives. Through inlet sluices the contaminated material is continuously brought into an evacuated container and heated up during passage. The moist parts (water and several carbohydrate compounds) evaporate during this process. These fumes are sucked off the container, separated from dust particles, and then condensed. The purified material leaves the container through outlet sluices.


Most of the solid and liquid final products gained this way can be recycled. Soil can be reused for agricultural purposes after being mixed with water and bacteria. Metallic powder gained from grinding sludge can be added to blast-furnace processing; most of the separated carbohydrates (oils) can be reprocessed.



Sterilizing - is the cleanest solution. Subsequent sterilization destroys bacteria's, fungicide, prions etc. This unrecognizable and sterile waste can be disposed of as household waste without any problems or be sent to recycling plants.
