Although petroleum refining is one of the most significant users of water for hydraulic formation and other chemical processes, a lot of water-borne debris and sludge is produced during oil production. Some of this sludge, called wastewater, is heavily diluted with water and may also contain heavy metals such as mercury. If you don’t dispose of it in an efficient and safe way, this sludge can spread into other areas of your operation and contaminate drinking water, land, or the ground-water supply, to name a few.

Fortunately, there are a variety of different hazardous drugs and wastes that can be classified as an acid. When they do occur, it is important to remember that different acids have different hazardous waste effects.
