On 1 June 2015, Hydrodec, the clean tech industrial oil re-refining group, announced that its rebuilt Canton plant was fully commissioned. In the press statement, the company noted that, subject to final instrument tuning, the Ohio based plant was expected to commence production that week. Expansion trains 1 and 2 were the company’s immediate focus and the first batch of equipment scheduled to begin operation. The commissioning process enabled mechanical completion and testing of the replacement trains 3 to 6. These trains are scheduled to be started sequentially once production from trains 1 and 2 has been fully established.
In its latest update, Hydrodec stated that during the production ramp up of trains 1 and 2, equipment integrity issues have caused production to be halted whilst necessary remedial work is undertaken. The company is working closely with the principal constructor and the original equipment manufacturer to resolve the issues. It expects to provide a further update to the market by the end of next week.
Hydrodec of North America expects to broaden its sales to a variety of new customers as well as reinitiate supply to most of its core customer base within a few months of start up. Hydrodec’s transformer oil will be the first oil product in the market to generate a carbon credit, which can be traded as a voluntary carbon offset in the US.
