SEE OUR SAFETY COMMITMENT

Our Cleaning Services

Our grass roots built, cutting edge cleaning facility in Orange, Texas is designed to handle unit trains and will have the capacity to clean 100 railcars in a 24-hour period.  Proprietary cleaning processes and an environmental tripe zero (0-0-0) approach eliminates the need for confined space entry and will set new safety and environmental standards in the industry.  We've designed this system to process and destruct harmful vapors, making it environmentally friendly, as well as, maintaining the highest level of safety for our employees.  Any residuals collected during and after the cleaning processes are separated and returned to the industrial commodity stream.  Our process helps reduce the wait time for customers, reduces emissions, reduces the environmental impact, and in turn, increases safety.
