Background — Bango Oil is a recycling facility that re-refines non-hazardous, used lubrication oil (e.g., used motor oil) into a saleable resource (e.g., lubrication oil). The facility has been issued a permit from Churchill County (special use permit) to produce up to 22,000 gallons per day (gpd) of finished oil product.
Bango Oil has constructed an on-site oil-removal treatment system to treat its process wastewater with the intent of recycling as much of the effluent as possible internally (water conservation) for process makeup supply including production pad washing, cooling tower makeup and fire system storage.
To discharge any surplus treated effluent beyond process needs and storage capability, the facility has applied and received a permit from the Nevada Division of Environmental Protection's Bureau of Water Pollution Control (BWPC). The permit is a five-year water pollution control discharge permit. This webpage provides information about the BWPC permitting process.
The BWPC permit will allow the surplus effluent to be discharged on-site for dust control (water truck application) and ornamental landscape (drip) irrigation. A truck fill stand will be part of the facility's reuse program for future water truck demand upon approval by the Division for any off-site application of the treated effluent.
