Blue Tide Redesigns Motor Oil Recycling Plant

Blue Tide Environmental LP, formerly TopSail Energy LP, an environmental company that builds and develops used motor oil recycling facilities, recently redesigned its recycling plant in Baytown, TX. Blue Tide’s 4,500 barrel-per-day recycling plant is located on a 44-acre site on Cedar Bayou.

The plant will produce environmentally responsible low-sulfur vacuum gas oil as its primary product, with additional storage, logistics and processing infrastructure planned on the adjacent undeveloped land owned by Blue Tide. The plant’s location also has a barge dock that provides access to tanker markets along with access to rail/transload facilities. The redesign is scheduled to be completed in 2022.

Blue Tide produces low-sulfur marine fuels derived from reclaimed used motor oil. The company’s compliant products offer environmentally friendly blend components with a significantly reduced greenhouse gas footprint compared to virgin fossil fuels.

Blue Tide is a portfolio company of Tailwater Capital LLC, a private equity firm based in Dallas. Blue Tide is led by a team of industry veterans including Mark Bouldin as chief executive officer, William Edwards as chief financial officer, Stephen Lewis as senior vice president, sales and marketing, and Chad Aldrich as senior vice president, special projects.
