CleanPlanet: Who We Are
About CleanPlanet Chemical
Our model for onsite chemical recycling can be traced back more than twenty years, when we introduced our first line of chemical recycling equipment. Today’s products represent a rebirth—ushering in a new era of responsible and sustainable chemical waste management.
We challenged ourselves to address the three most critical obstacles facing the marketplace:
Companies that did purchase equipment soon learned that their units required frequent adjustments in order to optimize chemical quality and maximize throughput. Maintenance and supply requirements further complicated ownership, so inevitably the equipment was tucked away in a remote corner of the facility, never to be used again.
