Immingham East has the capability to handle materials that include pressurized chemical gases, liquid petroleum gases, low-flash-point, low-boiling-point solvents and feedstock chemicals and high-flash-point distillates.

The range of products which can be stored includes acids, alkalis, refined petroleum, bulk commodity chemicals, small volume high purity pharmaceutical and foodstuff chemicals, vegetable oils and refinery feed stock.

A comprehensive, semi-automated drum filling facility is available. It routinely handles a wide variety of low flash point solvent products, including alcohols, ketones, aliphatic hydrocarbons and acetates.

Specialised storage solutions on offer include nitrogen-blanketed and steam-heated stainless steel, carbon steel and lined tanks.

The Immingham East Terminal holds a Part A PPC (Pollution Prevention & Control) Permit with the Environment Agency for storing both hazardous and non-hazardous bulk liquid wastes for off-site disposal or recovery. In accordance with the stringent permission regime for storing hazardous bulk liquid wastes and as an EPR (Extended Producer Responsibility) Part A process, wastes are stored in tanks with impermeable bunding and managed under strict stock management systems and reporting regimes.

The Terminal is also permitted to carry out water separation activities and the recovery of the separated hazardous and non-hazardous waste. Recent investment in water treatment facilities provides the capability for the disposal of separated waste water. The above activities cover a wide range of permitted EWC (European Waste Catalogue) codes.

In order to meet permitting requirements and to uphold Inter Terminals’ commitment to personal and process safety, WAMITAB (formerly the Waste Management Industry Training & Advisory Board) qualified personnel are located at the Terminal.

All stock control is managed by using TASCS, the company’s own computer-based system. Customers can have direct access to their own management information concerning product movement into and out of the site.
