Waste Processing

Reducing, re-using and recycling industrial waste helps Newalta customers become environmental stewards - and meet or exceed growing regulatory requirements.

We operate an integrated network of facilities to collect, consolidate and process industrial waste from across Canada and bordering states.

Newalta uses industry-leading technology to process both organic and inorganic waste streams. We’ve pioneered the use of centrifugation, distillation and physical chemical treatment to do so. We maximize the recovery of reusable products while reducing the volume of waste for disposal.

Our waste processing operations generate residues that can require further treatment and disposal. We manage these materials internally, operating to meet or exceed all regulatory requirements.

We process a wide range of wastes at our facilities. Some of these include:

  • Acids
  • Caustics
  • Completion fluids
  • Contaminated fluids
  • Contaminated soil
  • Drilling fluids
  • Emulsions
  • Frac fluids
