Altiras Buys Surplus Chemical Products
Sell us your Surplus and Off-spec Products

Altiras is a buyer of many different types of surplus and off-spec chemical, fuel, and petroleum products. Most companies end up with surplus or off-spec chemicals or fuels from time to time. Unfortunately, many don’t know that there are great alternatives to disposal. Altiras specializes in beneficial reuse of many different chemical and petroleum products. While we prefer to deal in bulk tank, rail, and truckload quantities, we still often purchase small lots of drums and totes of various products. We also purchase tank bottoms, accidentally contaminated trucks, isotanks, or railcars.

Below are some examples of surplus and off-spec products we purchase. To see current surplus / spot products that we have available for sale, please click here.
