Under authority of the Iraq Ministry of Environment, FCO GROUP has a designated waste disposal site, handling used and expired chemicals, acid and contaminated oil. With supervision by the Iraq Ministry of Environment, hazardous waste will be received at our designated disposal sites where it will be analyzed to identify its status and determine the disposal method. We will then open a specific disposal pit which will be lined with a clay / soil compacted base and polythene sheeting – sealed to prevent seepage. Chemicals in their drums will then be placed in the pit and buried in soil.

Bioremedial Disposal Used and contaminated oils will also be tested then emptied into a fully lined pit and mixed with soil and active microbes which break down the oil. The mix will be tilled every week for a period of 10 weeks until the oil has been broken down. A new batch will then be added or the pit will be covered, depending on volume. Oil filters will be drained, washed then crushed before sending for recycling. The oily residue will be interred in the waste oil pit.
