Angola oil and gas services company, Friburge Oil and Gas, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Norwegian based cleantech company, ENNOX Technology, in a bid to discover novel ways of providing waste management services to Angola.
The partnership – which was signed last week at Angola Oil & Gas 2019 – will provide the Angolan market with a solution for oil-contaminated waste that will ensure a reduction in costs and increased environmental efficiencies.
Ennox technology is branded Ennox Green Extraction (EGX), and the EGX unit is highly mobile and delivered in a standard 20-foot enclosed container.
It will extract close to 100 percent of hydrocarbons without the use of heat or harmful chemicals and can process up to 10 tons per hour. Furthermore, the EGX process enables the customer to reuse and sell the handled waste.
“Traditionally, oil-contaminated waste has been stored in landfills or handled with high costs, a large footprint, high environmental emissions, and high safety hazards,” Friburge said in a statement, adding that stricter regulations demand that contaminated waste and soil to be handled in an environmentally sustainable way.
