To save money, business owners are always looking for ways to reduce the "fat" in their operations. The disposal costs of hazardous waste is often overlooked. Management is now more aware of the costs associated with the purchase and disposal of solvents (chemicals) as a result of rising oil prices. There is great potential to save money on how these "waste streams" are managed.
It is now much easier to find the right waste oil demolition system than it was in the past. Fully automated solutions are available to companies that don't require staff full-time.
There are also machines that can handle small volumes, such as 2-gallon batches. These machines can be used to recover hundreds of thousands to millions of gallons per hour and are easy to use. This equipment is cost-saving and can be used to solve hazardous waste disposal issues. It often has a payback period of less than one year. This equipment could also be eligible for tax credits from the government for environmental purchases.
Solvent recovery equipment is available for almost every industry. For example, solvents are used for parts cleaning or paint cleanup. In reality, almost all industries use some chemicals in cleaning and manufacturing. In-house solvent recovery has the advantage of allowing you to match the correct sized still with the number of waste chemicals produced. It is easy to determine the cost-benefit ratio for purchasing equipment once this has been done correctly.
Service company disposal costs do not decrease, but they rise with time. Because most chemicals are oil-based products, they will always be more expensive. Executives who are looking to save money and make their business more efficient can consider in-house solvent recovery.
In-house solvent recovery can be a great way to save money in today's tough business environment. It takes only a few minutes for management to assess the viability and feasibility of an in-house program for waste reduction through solvent recovery. In-house solvent recovery is a secondary benefit that gives the organization the title of "good neighbor".
