Posted by Colin Darcel

May 11, 2017 9:30:00 AM

One of the most frequent questions we get when talking with manufacturers is "What does it cost to recycle my solvents?"

We normally end up telling them that there is NO "cost" to getting solvent recycling equipment and they will in fact save or gain money. Here are a few reasons how you save money:

When we talk with clients who are learning about the viability of recycling solvent waste, clients often wonder what the purity of the final product will be. Especially with pharmaceutical clients, where a virgin solvent is required each and every time. Through using the correct recycling equipment, which is designed for your waste stream using lab tests and analysis, you can in-fact have a recycled solvent which is over 98% pure, which is equal quality to a virgin product.

Solvent Waste Recycling In-House - How To Get Started

Posted by Colin Darcel

Mar 9, 2017 2:00:00 PM

If you’re in an industry which produces waste, you likely already have an understanding of your options when it comes to disposing of that waste. If you’re like most companies, you store the waste product (taking up valuable space) until you have enough of it to call in a company to pick-up the waste and dispose of it. In certain situations, these disposal companies then go on to recycle your waste and can either sell it back to you or to other companies. They literally make money from your waste which you paid them to pick up. There is obviously a more efficient and cost effective way to deal with your solvent, water, oil or other hazardous liquid wastes. But where do you get started?

Will water-based “green” technologies replace traditional solvents?

Posted by Colin Darcel

Jun 21, 2016 12:30:00 PM

It’s an interesting and important question. Over the last few decades there has been a shift to use water-based, ‘green’ technology over traditional solvents in a variety of applications. In order to do our best to preserve the environment, we should definitely incorporate green technology when it can provide a suitable replacement in terms of quality and performance. However, does this mean that the need for traditional solvents will disappear?
