In the transportation industry, tank trucks that haul food-grade oils are required to be thoroughly washed out between loads before any new product is introduced. Facilities that clean these tank trucks produce oily water from a combination of the wash water infused with the oil residue clinging to the inside of the tank. This oily wash water must be disposed of properly. So, to comply with the various local, state, and federal EPA requirements in this regard, facilities that clean tank trucks must find cost-effective water treatment solutions involving oil and water separation equipment to remove the residual oil in wash water before it is discharged into the sewer and sent to a municipal facility. Failing such regulatory compliance can be costly; after treatment, if the water contains too much residual oil, municipal water treatment centers can refuse to accept it and levy hefty surcharges and fines.
