The Amlon Group's 250 Mile Radius is lifted

With The Amlon Group’s excellent track record for compliance and the environment, their 250 mile radius has expanded that to receive product from the United States.

The Amlon Group currently operates pursuant to a VRF Variance. Oil-bearing hazardous secondary material (OBHSM) transported to The Amlon Group’s Port Allen facility for reclamation that meets specified criteria is thereby excluded from the definition of a solid waste (and by extension a hazardous waste). The variance allows facilities to send material on a bill of lading (BOL) as an excluded material.

Per the VRF Variance, The Amlon Group is authorized to accept oil-bearing material from refineries and related industries.

Does Verified Recycling Exclusion (VRE) apply since EPAs 2018 DSW rule?

As you may have read, the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality (LDEQ) adopted the 2015 version of EPA’s Definition of Solid Waste (DSW) rule on June 20, 2017. See, HW118 in the Louisiana Register.

This rule provided, in part, that hazardous secondary material that is generated and then transferred to a verified reclamation facility (VRF) for the purpose of reclamation is not a solid waste provided that certain criteria are satisfied.

About The Amlon Group

With increasing landfilling liability and growing federal and state regulations, oil companies today must look for a sustainable alternative when managing their materials. Add in the desire for sustainable solutions, and the industry is void of options.

Enter The Amlon Group, a sustainable, clean, proven, and accepted process to treat refinery materials.

Defining what sustainability means for oil reclamation

The Amlon Group is an Environmental Solutions Company providing Sustainable Solutions for petroleum hydrocarbon management through Innovative Recovery Techniques utilizing proven thermal and mechanical processes.

The Amlon Group offers refineries access to one of the largest thermal desorption and separation plants in the USA. Focused solely on treating refinery and related materials, our services are designed to help your plant increase its sustainability by diverting your oil bearing materials from landfills to our plant, where they will be treated using our compliant, clean and efficient reclamation processes. 

Our Solution

Reclamation Process

Our goal is total transparency from the day your materials arrive at our plant until the moment the material is recycled and shipped for reuse. Once The Amlon Group begins managing the material, it uses dewatering and/or indirect thermal desorption processes to separate oil bearing material into treated water, clean oil, and solids.


We’re proud to be fully permitted at all levels to accept recyclable oil bearing materials in a compliant, clean and efficient manner. What The Amlon Group’s facility is capable of is unlike anything else in the region.

The Amlon Group's processes reclaim oil from oil bearing materials more efficiently and effectively than any other methodology, treating solid materials with zero incineration, and recycling these materials in innovative and sustainable ways.

Safety and compliance

The Amlon Group’s operations have been audited and inspected. We take pride in a rigorous protocol that is in full compliance with local state and federal regulatory standards. The Amlon Group has a comprehensive emergency management plan and are  committed to keeping safety as our number one priority.
