Petrochemical and Chemical Storage Tanks

Petrochemicals and Chemical Tanks – Chemicals are a part of life, there is no way around it. Some of the chemicals used in manufacturing, oil, and petroleum exploration – refining, silicon engineering are extremely caustic and carcinogenic. They need to be contained with care. One aspect of NST, is providing tanks for these applications.

Petrochemicals have evolved from only referring to oil & gas related materials but contributing to a remarkable array of useful products including plastics, synthetic rubber, solvents, fertilizers, pharmaceuticals, and adhesives. Petrochemicals are used in cars, packaging, household goods, medical equipment, pain, clothing, and building materials to name a few. NST is pleased to have a large client base of petrochemical companies that rely on our storage tank innovation to provide them with 21st-century storage tanks able to provide not only cost-effective solutions but durability and safety in a toxic setting.
