Texas Army National Guard

Year Submitted: 2003

Process: Vehicle Maintenance

Industry: Government Agency-Includes Military

Wastes Reduced: Contaminated Fuel & Solvents

Substance: Diesel & PD-680

Equipment: Paper Towels

Location: Camp Mabry, Austin TX

Contact: LTC Don Tryce

Phone: (512) 465-5001 ext 5717



Description:

In October 1992, the Texas Army National Guard purchased four SRS-50 solvent distillation units for $14,995 per unit from Solvent Recovery Systems, Inc.. The units were placed in operation in January of 1993.

P2 Application:

In 1993 and 1995, the Texas Army National Guard purchased four Gulf Coast Filtering Systems. The units are mounted on tandem trailers which allows them to be towed to any facility to recycle diesel and solvent. The units have successfully recycled diesel and PD-680 Type 1. The units are located at the Mobilization and Training Equipment Site in North Fort Hood Combined Support Maintenance Shop #1 in Saginaw and Combined Support Maintenance Shop #2 in Austin. Because of the periodic nature of operations, diesel fuel is sometimes left for months in tanks where it can become contaminated with condensation.

Environmental Benefits:

Since 1993, 107,600 gallons of diesel have been filtered and recycled for use.

Details of Reductions

Additional Information :

The two units cost approximately $37,000. The cost for disposal would have been $26,900 and the cost of fuel was $105,500. The units pay for themselves after processing approximately 6,171 gallons of fuel.
