Our 2-Part sludge removal and Waste Disposal Process

Spill Genie’s SG– ASL/3T, Storage Tank Cleaning Process of the future! 


Spill Genie has formulated a 2-part solution to clean, remediate and dispose of storage tank sludge in the industry’s first environmentally conscious manner.  SG-ASL Part 1 is formulated to solubilize and disperse the asphaltene solids, reduce viscosity, enhance flow, and remove asphaltene buildup.  SG-ASL Part 1 works by surrounding the asphaltene molecules, effectively breaking the bond between the asphaltene molecules; thus, causing the state of asphaltenes to change from a “bonded” solid state to an “un-bonded” viscous liquid state so it can be pumped out to a holding tank or disposal vehicle to a Re-processor. 

SG-ASL Part 1’s proprietary blend of NON-BTEX (benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene and xylene) solvents, Co-solvents and surfactants disperse, and suspend the solubilized asphaltenes.  The dispersion process prevents the asphaltenes from reattaching and clumping to one another. Thus, the solubilized asphaltenes remain suspended in our solution as a pumpable slurry for interim disposal to a holding tank where our solution creates separation of recoverable hydrocarbons, recoverable SG- ASL (to be used for final cleaning), and wash water, if introduced during the remediation process. Our product has a built-in de-mulsifier which eliminates the need for additional chemicals to achieve this separation. Thus, leaving the storage tank free of asphaltene solids and sludge and ready for final cleaning in preparation for your 653 inspection and return to use.

SG-ASL Part 2, also know as SG-3T, is a proprietary blend of highly specialized microbes, enzymes, and plant-based components, all integrated to create a synergistic response to quickly remediate the hydrocarbon contaminants remaining in the holding tank.  


SG-ASL Part 2 is non-hazardous, biodegradable, eco-friendly and is listed on the US EPA NCP Product Schedule.* 


What sets SG-ASL apart from other similar products is it allows for turnkey, end-to-end, environmentally-conscious cleaning, and disposal of storage tank asphaltene solids and sludge.


Additionally, SG-ASL:  

• Contains NO BTEX solvents 

• Prevents treated asphaltenes from re-solidifying,  

• Converts bonded asphaltenes to a pumpable slurry, thereby eliminating the high cost of mechanical 

  methods of disposal 

• The recoverable hydrocarbons can be reprocessed 

• The recoverable SG-ASL Part 1 can be used for the storage tank’s final cleaning
