The UK's Envorem has teamed up with Saudia Arabia-based Greenland Environmental Services to provide its innovative Greentech for the treatment of oil sludges
Envorem’s innovative new technology uses a little-known property of water to process production sludges, cleaning the solids and recovering the entrained oil without generating emissions. The technology combines established techniques with hydraulic shock and cavitation. Envorem uses these forces to drive oil contamination out of sludges and solids using less than 10% of the energy required for thermal treatment techniques.
Envorem and Greenland Environmental Services are building a roadmap for localisation to manufacture the recycling systems in Saudi Arabia to support the Saudi 2030 vision, the Saudi Green Initiative and Saudi Aramco’s In-Kingdom Total Value Add (iktva) programme.
Adam Majzoub, director of Greenland, said, “We at Greenland believe in the importance of being environmentally conscious and fully understand the importance of our establishment, and the responsibility that comes with it. We are committed to running our operations in line with the National waste management ambitions outlined in the kingdom's 2030 Vision for achieving environmental sustainability, increasing the efficiency of waste management, as well as establishing a comprehensive circular economy. With our strategic partnership with ENVOREM, we believe that we can contribute and align these mandates in the Kingdom.”
“We are pleased to align our innovative technology with a company that already makes a significant contribution to waste management in Saudi Arabia, has great links with the Saudi authorities, and already holds numerous waste transportation contracts,” said Iman Hill, Envorem’s recently appointed chair. “Within the Saudi Vision 2030 and its Green Initiative, there are ambitious targets for waste management and recycling, and this MOU is an important step in building a partnership in service of that vision, with Envorem’s unique technology at the heart of it.”
