About this item

Description:

Solvents used in laboratories create a large amount of chemical waste in a lab. This not only imposes high costs to properly dispose of and purchase enough solvent to meet our needs, but this unnecessary waste is bad for our environment. A solvent recycler distills chemical waste and separates it out from the other waste products in the water. This produces up to 99% pure solvent for reuse in the process. The solvent is then used indefinitely in the lab. LifeLabs has rolled this out to five of our labs and will continue to find new uses for this technology.
