The Process

MetaFLO has developed a process that solidifies liquid industrial waste streams in a matter of minutes, watch the videos below. The process includes a patented, high volume mixing unit that facilitates the addition of a powdered formulation of absorbent materials to meet environmental solids criteria and stabilize metals and hydrocarbons. The process can be applied as a mobile waste processing unit or in-situ for high volume continuous batch waste streams.

The Science

MetaFLO has developed a unique and proprietary database to record and help our customers with the optimal reagent for any water-based waste stream. We are able to characterize hundreds of waste samples by moisture content, composition, colour, odour, solids content, weight, dosage rate and time to solidify. The knowledge enables MetaFLO to make the best recommendations on the solidification solution for your specific waste stream. Let us know what waste stream you would like to solidify and we can help with a solid solution that will work for you.

We have many customized reagent blends that will address many different types of waste streams, see below how a couple of them work.

MetaFLO Reagent MF002

This reagent is designed to work in conjunction with a MetaFLO LMS mixing unit and is used for the solidification and stabilization of drill fluids. MF002 is designed for use on drill fluid or similar waste that fails the Paint Filter Test (PFT) and the Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure TCLP for Heavy Metals.

  • Can reduce weight and volume by as much as 20%
  • Immediately converts drill fluids to a solid
  • Creates a dry, stackable solid for easy handling
  • Can help waste pass Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure (EPA Method 1311)
  • Help waste pass paint filter criteria
  • Minimal humidity effects
  • Landfill friendly
  • LMS or mixing equipment
  • Clay Component

MetaFLO Reagent MF006

MF006 is a proprietary solidification reagent used with non-pumpable materials and is ideal with MetaFLO’s mixing delivery system or bucket mixing. It has been proven very effective in the solidification of drill cuttings, drilling mud, hydrovac mud and industrial sludge with higher suspended solids.

  • Can reduce weight and volume by as much as 20%
  • Immediately converts drill fluids to a solid
  • Creates a dry, stackable solid for easy handling
  • Can help waste pass Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure (EPA Method 1311)
  • Help waste pass paint filter criteria
  • Minimal humidity effects
  • Landfill friendly
  • Mixing equipment or manual mix
  • Perfect for smaller batches

MetaFLO Reagent MF008

The MF008 reagent, engineered to work in conjunction with MetaFLO’s mixing unit, is ideal for solidifying oil based drill cuttings. MF008 is non-hazardous, non-toxic, chemically inert and consists of naturally occurring minerals. The typical dosages for MF008 is less than 3% w/w and it has been proven to be a superior product to traditional bulking agents such as sawdust.

Benefits – How we are different

The conventional method for dealing with liquid waste is to use expensive vacuum trucks to capture the liquid waste and transport it to a transfer station where suspended solids are separated from the water and mixed with sawdust, woodchips or pulp waste to meet landfill solids criteria. This can create as much as 300% more waste volume. In addition, there are significant transportation costs – both financial and environmental. MetaFLO has developed a solution that addresses all these areas.
