Largest Waste Solidification Processor in the Southeastern US

Clark Environmental Admin - Thursday, April 23, 2015
On March 2, 2015, Clark Environmental's waste solidification permit was renewed by Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP). As part of the permit renewal, CLARK doubled our capabilities to process sludge, liquid and solid materials. With 39,935 square feet of permitted processing and storage space (not including thermal treatment processing and storage),CLARK is now permitted to handle and process more sludge than any other facility in the entire Southeastern US.  

As part of the permit renewal, CLARK's waste processing permit allows us to process up to 9,660 tons of material and handle up to 62,544 gallons of Wastewater. This does not include our capabilities to process and store over 15,000 tons of material for Thermal Treatment.

While many competitors are limited to the amount of material they can process using roll-off boxes, our capabilities to process and treat material are unmatched.

Florida Sinkholes & Contaminated Soils

Clark Environmental Admin - Thursday, March 07, 2013
Most of us have recently heard in the news about sinkholes opening in Florida.   We figured that this is a good time for a reminder that in Florida, sinkholes can open almost anywhere. 

Sinkholes are increasing in occurrence in Florida, due primarily to the region's geology. The state is largely underlain by porous limestone, which can hold immense amounts of water in underground aquifers. As groundwater slowly flows through the limestone, it forms a landscape called karst, known for features like caves, springs and sinkholes. 

The water in aquifers also exerts pressure on the limestone and helps to stabilize the overlying surface layer, usually clay, silt and sand in Florida. Sinkholes form when that layer of surface material caves in.


Sinkholes and Petroleum Contaminated Soils

Thermal Treatment eliminates the liability for the generator, as well as FDEP in the case of the Petroleum Cleanup Program sites. In 2010 a sinkhole occurred under a landfill in Florida causing problems with the landfill's liner. In 1976 Congress passed the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). This gave the EPA the authority to control the "cradle to grave" management of waste. The law established that it is the generator's responsibility for the waste. Also the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA) established that the generator of wastes may be held liable for the cleanup of contamination, regardless of their involvement that caused the contamination. Therefore when choosing a facility for petroleum contaminated soils, it is always safer to Thermally Treat and eliminate all contaminates than risk the liability for a problem to occur in a landfill where your waste has been shipped.



Happy Holidays!
