Drilling Mud Classification:

Environment Protection Authority Victoria (EPA)  has released a new waste classifications for drilling mud. This new classification has undergone a lengthy and detailed consultation with CCF Members and other industry representatives from late 2014.

These liquid Category A Prescribed Industrial Wastes (PIW) will now be recognised as non-PIW, provided appropriate measures are in place to prevent pollution to the environment, as outlined in the classifications.

The new classification for drilling mud was developed to reduce regulatory and financial burden where there is a low risk to the environment.
