Lonestar Ecology returns from Environmental Trade Fair
Gulf Coast region’s newest waste management facility debuts services
HOUSTON, TX – Lonestar Ecology, the Gulf Coast region’s newest waste management facility, went on the road this month to exhibit at the TCEQ Environmental Trade Fair and Conference on May 1 and 2 in Austin.
The annual event, presented by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, is the premier environmental forum in the state, featuring exhibition booths and educational sessions.
“It is great place to network and introduce our services to other companies looking for a waste disposal partner,” Larry Peyton, Lonestar Ecology’s CEO, said. “We were looking for possible collaborators, and there’s definitely a bit of everything there.”
Peyton said he also wanted to attend the conference to announce the grand opening of Lonestar Ecology. “We wanted to let people know we’re open for business,” he said. “We also wanted our team to attend seminars and learn more about environmental best practices.”
Lonestar Ecology, located at 12901-A Bay Park Road in Pasadena, opened in April 2012 and is the first facility of its kind to emerge in the area in more than a decade.
The facility treats organic waste waters, oily waste waters and oil water emulsions, as well as a broad array of RCRA hazardous wastes.
Lonestar Ecology holds CWT, RCRA (Resource Conservation and Recovery Act), and Gulf Coast Waste Disposal Authority Affluent permits.
The pretreated waste waters are transferred through a pipeline directly to the Gulf Coast Waste Disposal Authority’s Bay Area Boulevard facility. This partnership with GCWDA is a key to proper treatment and disposal of the water before it is released into environment.
Peyton explained that a state-of-the-art waste management facility can play an important role in supporting the area’s petrochemical industry.
“The future of the petroleum and chemical plants in the Gulf Coast region is critical to our local economy,” he said.
“In addition to helping our clients become successful, our goal is to be a good neighbor to area residents and industries by handling waste in a safe, efficient and environmentally compliant matter,” Peyton said.
