Reducing Solvent Extraction Costs with Solvent Recycling Systems

Solvent extraction is necessary for a wide variety of applications: DNA purification, Food and Analytical chemistry, Industrial process design and more. But the solvent extraction process can be expensive. Did you know many of the solvents used in the extraction process —for example, butane, propane, hexane, isopropyl alcohol and ethanol — can be recycled with up to a 98% recovery rate? Your facility doesn’t have to incur unnecessary costs on chemical solvents and hazardous waste disposal and EPA reporting. Instead, you could be recycling and reusing your solvent waste on-site, while increasing the efficiency of degreasing and cleaning operations.

Here are 4 ways our solvent recycling can reduce your solvent extraction costs and unnecessary solvent purchases, while dramatically reducing your hazardous waste:

1. Ease of Use

Solvent Recycling Systems designed solvent recyclers that require little to no manual labor, using IoT-enabled technology. The solvent recyclers are unique in that they can take corrective action to avoid downtime in the workplace. This is made possible through the use of automated tank level monitoring that replenishes solvent to the mix, sending alerts when the chemical reaches a pre-specified level in the tank.

2. Scalability

Your solvent extraction requirements shouldn’t restrict you from taking advantage of an on-site solvent recycling unit. Solvent Recycling Systems’ solvent-as-a-service offering allows you to process waste chemicals continuously, in batch or on a cost-per-use basis, meaning you can recycling complex solvent wastes in the most economical way possible with a reduced footprint in your facility.

3. Conservation

Solvent recycling on-site not only reduces your solvent disposal costs, it reduces the need for storage, your environmental impact, and as a result, your EPA reporting requirements. Hazardous waste is difficult to dispose of and threatens both the environment and public safety. On-site recycling can help your facility stay compliant and avoid environmental hazards, protect scarce natural resources, and reduce the nation’s reliance on raw materials and energy.

4. Operational Efficiency

Clean, eco-friendly solvent available on repeat means more efficient cleaning operations. This removes the operational burden on purchasing managers, as well as Environmental, Health and Safety managers, eliminating waste streams. We provide a sustainable solution for reducing hazardous waste disposal and resource consumption.
