Temarry Recycling, Inc. is honored to announce that it has been selected to present at the 19th Annual California CUPA Forum Training Conference in February in San Diego, California.

Temarry’s Director of Business Development, Larry Burton will give a presentation entitled Using Integrated Technology in Mexico for Maximum Environmental Sustainability.”


Presentation Overview

Sending hazardous waste to Temarry Recycling in Tecate, Mexico has become increasingly common for hazardous waste generators in California. Large entities such as the U.S. Federal Government, State of California, automotive manufacturers, aerospace companies and biotech firms utilize the Temarry Treatment, Storage and Disposal Facility (TSDF). 

CUPAs throughout the state have been asked about the legality of exporting hazardous waste to Mexico. Generators would like to better utilize the local CUPA for first-hand information and understanding. 

Temarry Recycling has been exporting hazardous waste from U.S. to their facility in Tecate, B.C. for over 18 years. Last year there were over 5,000 manifests received by Temarry from the U.S.


Why the increased interest in Temarry?

With the climate change debate front and center in local, national and international politics and new environmental legislation in California, waste generators have an elevated interest in reducing their carbon footprint and using the most sustainable methods of recycling.

In their research, many generators are coming to realize that H061 fuel blending is not the best option. Recycling a waste and putting it back into industry to be used for its original purpose is a much higher level of sustainability.

Temarry is the only facility serving the Western U.S. that utilizes multiple technologies in a closed loop process to achieve the highest level of sustainability.  

  • Waste to Energy (WTE) – high BTU solid waste is converted to steam
  • Solvent Distillation – utilizes the steam from WTE to power the recovery stills. Recovered solvents are sold back into industry to be used for their original purpose.
  • Water Treatment – Water based wastes from industry including acids, bases, coolants, oily water, latex paint and other industrial processes are treated onsite as part of the closed loop process. Treated water is used in cooling tower, venturi scrubber and WTE cool down


What will attendees learn?

Core Knowledge Hazardous Waste Generator and Onsite Hazardous Waste Treatment Intermediate I-3 in the following areas:

  • Instruction and discussion on technologies of solvent distillation, waste to energy, water treatment and fuel blending.
  • Instruction and discussion on how modern recycling technologies can be used together to achieve the highest level of sustainability.
  • The legality of shipping hazardous waste to Mexico.
  • Cradle to Grave liability.
  • What is different for a generator that sends waste to Mexico.
