The application of oily waste materials onto land has been a popular and inexpensive method of disposal used in the Canadian oil industry during the past 40 to 50 years. A variety of oily solid or semi-solid wastes have been disposed of in this manner including cuttings from drilling operations, sludges from the bottom of storage tanks or from gravity separators or biological treatment tanks and residues from flotation tanks. The potential exists for soil chemical and biological processes to degrade these oily wastes to end products that are innocuous and thus require no further treatment, however little information is currently available on environmentally acceptable methods for application for these wastes.
