What is hydrocarbons waste management?
When we say hydrocarbon waste we mean hazardous waste. As we know, there are a number of regulations at national and regional (RD 833-88, RD 952-97, Law 22-2011, etc.) primarily aimed at minimizing the harmful effects to the environment and to define and regulate all aspects of this type of waste. Among these aspects there are established certain requirements and obligations to be fulfilled by any person or entity that generates some kind of waste considered hazardous to the environment (figure defined as hazardous waste producer), the most important being:
- Opening statement of the residue from competent regional body.
- Identification and proper storage of hazardous waste.
- Removing the waste in period not exceeding six months, by an authorized agent for treatment-controlled disposal (in particular cases the Administration may authorize a longer period).
- Annual statement of the hazardous waste managed.
