The True Value of Onsite Solvent Recycling and Recovery

True Value b

Industrial manufacturers considering solvent recycling and waste management may have questions about the cost. When discussing finances, it is easy to get distracted by the upfront costs, but solvent recycling provides many long-term benefits that outweigh that initial upfront expense. This includes ongoing disposal cost savings, reduced solvent purchasing costs, and improved environmental sustainability. In this blog we look at the true value of solvent recovery and recycling.

Disposal Costs

Traditional waste disposal companies typically collect full solvent drums, charging fees for both pickup and disposal. Depending on the amount of solvent waste your business produces regularly, these expenses can become costly. In addition, in between each pickup you lose valuable floor space that must be used to store your waste until it can be collected by the disposal company. However, this process does not end there. In some instances, the disposers opt to recycle the waste themselves and resell it to other manufacturers. Which means that by using a third-party waste disposal company, they may be reaping the benefits of your recovered waste instead of you.

The Endless Cycle of Solvent Purchasing

The disposal of solvents perpetuates the need to replenish your solvent stock. After disposal, a manufacturer must inevitably purchase new solvents from suppliers. This results in manufacturers continuing to pay high solvent costs that will unavoidably increase over time. Depending solely on virgin solvent leaves your business at the mercy of the industrial chemical market. The cyclical nature of these constant solvent purchases can place a financial strain that hinders sustainable business growth over time.

Environmental Sustainability

Many regions have begun to regulate and monitor the amount of waste that manufacturers produce regularly. In some instances, companies may be required to pay additional taxes or fees according to their waste volumes. By recycling solvent waste your business will be able to stay within governmental regulations avoiding potential added costs and allow you to contribute to the circular economy.
