Safety Health Environment & Quality
Fuel 44 (Pty) Ltd situated at 2 Tide Street in Woodstock, Cape Town is currently permitted in terms of a Waste Management Licence (WML 12/9/11/L418/9) to collect, accept, store, recycle and refine waste mineral oil and water contaminated with hydrocarbons from a number of suppliers and generators. This waste oil (which is generally destined for landfill disposal) and which contains varying concentrations of water is treated and refined to a certain industrial or commercial fit for purpose specification to supply various industries with their energy needs which includes fishing, clothing, confectionery, laundry and dairies.
The liquid waste collected and received is sourced predominantly from the Cape Town harbour, Waste Management and other industrial operations. It is stored at Fuel 44 where it is treated and refined. The differing oil/hydrocarbon types (black diesel, heavy furnace oil and lube oil) and water fractions are separated. The resultant liquid waste is further treated if necessary before being tested in order to meet the required City of Cape Town sewer discharge standards as permitted by the Department of Water Affairs Effluent Permit IEA8915. The compliant final residual effluent water is then safely discharged to the City of Cape Town sewerage reticulation system.
