They are well suited to the circular economy
Chlorinated solvents have unique recycling properties, which makes their eco-efficiency in modern equipment unrivalled.
Methylene chloride, for instance, is an extraction medium to produce pharmaceutical active substances (APIs). It can often be reused in these processes, and spent solvents can be recycled in other applications after simple distillation.
Perchloroethylene can be used for many cleaning cycles in today’s high-performance cleaning machines, meaning less solvent is needed. Spent solvents can be easily and efficiently recycled in the same applications, while certified recyclers ensure the safe disposal of cleaning residues.
