Petroleum Tank Pumping and Fuel Recycling Services

Reco Biotechnology offers vacuum truck services to pump out petroleum tanks for commercial, industrial and residential applications. Our state of the art, custom built vacuum trucks pump out above or underground fuel and/or oil tanks. We recycle the fuel and treat the sludge and water portion.

Petroleum Tank Pumping (Pump Outs)

Pumping out a petroleum tank is necessary when the tank is going to be decommissioned, repaired for a leak, or is being tested.

It is vitally important to clean these oil or fuel storage tanks prior to decommissioning to avoid any contamination or pollution during the removal. Once a tank has been pumped out, it can safely and legally be removed or, in some cases, filled with inert material.

Petroleum Tank Pump Out Fuel Recycling Services

The petroleum stored in these old tanks is often contaminated with grit, sand, sludge, and water. We can separate the fuel portion and recycle it as a fuel – it’s original intended purpose!! At Reco Biotechnology, we have a fleet of vacuum trucks, with the ability to clean and pump out oil storage tanks. Our vacuum trucks have powerful pumps that can get the job done quickly and efficiently. The pollutants are treated and disposed in an environmentally safe manner at our Richmond, VA facility.
