Waste Oil Recovery

William Nicol Ltd has over 20 years’ expertise and experience in the collection and treatment of waste oil.

It is a key part of our industrial services business and we continually invest in researching and improving our waste oil recovery methods.

We remove moisture from the oil to a level where water content is just 3%. This oil can then be re-used in a variety of applications. The water extracted is purified to enable it to be disposed of safely in accordance with waste disposal regulations.

One of the main sectors in which we provide our waste oil recovery services is shipping and we work directly with shipping companies and also with shipping agents.

Waste from bilges is transferred to our tankers on shore and processed at our licensed waste transfer station in Portlethen. Each day, on average, we deal with three to four ships, seven days a week and we can respond at very short notice – within four hours.
