Annotation: A uniquely engineered on-site drilling waste treatment system holds the potential for eliminating or dramatically reducing the widespread use of environmentally problematic reserve pits, while lowering costs in the process.The technology not only significantly reduces waste volume, long-term liability and costs but the dry condition of the treated material enhances disposal or re-use characteristics.
