Nathan Conrad discusses ways to improve financial and environmental returns through innovative catalyst management programs
NORWELL, Mass. – Clean Harbors, North America’s leading provider of environmental, energy and industrial services, has published an interview that explores new approaches to catalyst management for chemical companies and refineries. The interview, featuring Nathan Conrad, Clean Harbors Director, Catalyst Services, discusses the benefits of taking an integrated approach to catalyst unloading and loading, reclamation and disposal.
Part of Clean Harbors’ information series for companies that handle and/or generate hazardous materials, the interview is available on demand at: www.cleanharbors.com/catalyst3.
In the interview Conrad observes, “Catalyst management is typically handled by several different vendors and even different parts of the refinery or chemical plant organization. Historically, catalyst handling companies unload and load catalysts. The spent catalyst is loaded into containers and stored onsite; only after the turnaround is completed does the customer’s management look into processing and disposing of the catalyst waste.”
Conrad goes on to explain how an integrated approach that more quickly moves the spent catalyst through processing and reclamation or disposal improves safety and financial returns while enhancing environmental stewardship and regulatory compliance.
