OSS awards OSCAR – the world’s most advanced oil-water separator
OSS Group Ltd has awarded Industrial Waste Treatment Ltd three throughput process contracts for the installation of the world's most advanced piece of equipment to treat oily dirty water at its Stourport plant.
The patented £500,000 system, named OSCAR – Oil Separation Concentration
and Recovery – is the only one in the world to use APR (Accelerated Phase Separation)
technology to strip out volatile organic compounds (VOCs) during the evaporation
process. It has been developed by Kidderminster-based Industrial Waste Treatment
The move is part of OSS Group’s global environmental strategy to lead the industry
in recycling valuable resources and to embrace the forthcoming legislative changes
that will shape the future of specialist waste management.
OSCAR, which will also shortly be installed at the company’s largest plant
at Morley, near Leeds, is ideal for many other manufacturing applications which
produce soluble oil, for example the metal grinding, pharmaceutical and catering
Andy McNair, managing director of OSS Group, comments: “The introduction
of OSCAR is a giant leap forward in our environmental strategy and we are delighted
that we are leading the industry with the first installation of its kind in
Richard Lilleystone, director of Industrial Waste Treatment, added: “After
a great deal of research and development, we now have a process that is second
to none. In addition to a new standard of environmental compliance, the installation
has given the OSS Group a leading edge on the market, and with a second installation
imminent, we feel that we have made a valuable contribution to the companies
current and future profit.”
