Stolt Terminals, Inc.

Process: Laboratory Operation

Industry: Chemical Storage and Distribution

Wastes Reduced: Laboratory Waste

Location: Houston TX

Stolt Terminals is a transfer and shipping operation. As part of their quality control operations, samples of customer products are taken when the product is received and shipped. The samples are retained for a specified time. The samples had previously been combined and disposed as hazardous waste. The cost of the disposal was born by all customers.

P2 Application:

Stolt Terminals developed a system to allow their customers to select the handling of samples. The options included returning them to the customers facility, adding them to another lot of the same product at Stolt, or disposal of the sample as hazardous waste. Each option has an associated cost. Most customers selected either the first or second option and not disposal.

Environmental Benefits:

The customers returned over 50,000 gallons of product to their inventories significantly reducing a waste stream that was difficult to analyze and dispose. The customers also became aware of Stolt Terminals overall efforts to reduce waste generation and associated costs and minimize their product losses.

Details of Reductions

Additional Information :

Eliminated the disposal cost of 150 drums of hazardous waste. Handling costs were not increased due to the time required to consolidate and document wastes for disposal.
