A West Baton Rouge reclamation plant just got a shot in the arm thanks to environmental solutions company Thermaldyne

The plant is receiving a $50 million investment from Thermaldyne and according to BRAC, “the project will bring 75 new jobs with an average salary of $80k, plus benefits.”

BRAC said the reclamation plant is scheduled to open later this year and provide Louisiana oil companies a place within the state to manage heir oil bearing materials.

“For the past few years, our experienced team of environmental management and oil and gas professionals has worked diligently to create a safe and efficient way to reclaim oil bearing materials,” said Tolbert. “Through this entire process, safety, health, and compliance have remained our highest priorities, and we are committed to making a positive environmental impact. The design of our soon-to-open plant reflects that commitment.”

According to BRAC, the West Baton Rouge facility will have “the latest industrial petroleum reclamation technology.”  

“BRAC has been pleased to work with the Thermaldyne team over the past several years, and we are looking forward to the opening of the plant later this year,” said Adam Knapp, president and CEO of the Baton Rouge Area Chamber. “The combination of well-paying, quality jobs, and environmentally-conscious processes makes this an ideal project for the Capital Region.”
