Elton Taylor

Elton Taylor started ‘ruff necking’ at an early age and working his way into management. In 1998, he started in a new direction and worked with Soil Tech Environmental Services, an environmental company located in Louisiana. The company’s responsibility was to clean oil spills that occurred at well sites. After many months of research and development, 100% separation of oil was ultimately accomplished. The next hurdle was to work on a plan to recover oil from low-gravity solids. About 20% of the oil retrieved from wells is not sellable to pipeline companies due to low-gravity solids. Once again, a solution was found to successfully separate and clean the oil. To date, there have been 5 oil recovery facilities built utilizing remediation breakthrough. These facilities are located in Canada, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Wyoming and Alaska.
