MATERIALS AS A BY PRODUCT RATHER THAN WASTE

Solvent Reuse

One of the most exciting reuse programs is solvent reuse.  Solvent reuse is one of the best ways of seeing material as a by-product rather than waste.  The solvents used to clean materials or equipment within your facility are collected after use then labeled and managed as a product. The non-hazardous product can then use as-is in the cleaning of rail cars and the like.  The spent material from this cleaning process is then collected and used as fuel in cement kilns.

The solvents used to clean materials or equipment within your facility are collected after use, then labeled and managed as a product. Resource-One transports the non-RCRA hazardous product where it is used as-is in the cleaning of rail cars. The spent material from this cleaning process is then collected and used as fuel in cement kilns.

  • Turn Material into a By-Product rather than waste
  • Proven process to reuse solvents instead of throwing out
  • Potentially Reduce your EPA Generator Status

You can look better with the EPA by utilizing reuse programs.  You can take advantage of programs called solvent reuse. Many materials can be reused in manufacturers’ facilities that might otherwise be discarded as waste.  Reuse programs save manufacturers money every month and help preserve the environment.  Here are some common materials that can be reused with the right programs:

  • Certain Chemicals
  • Gasoline / Fuel
  • Cleaning Solvents

Solvent reuse programs extend the life of materials, reduce hazardous waste, and are ISO 14001 approved.  These programs reduce manufacturers’ risk and liability and can lower EPA generator status.
