Service365: Recycling solvent in the Flexible Packaging industry with no up front cost
The complete solvent recycling service for Flexible Packagers.
Plant managers in the Flexographic industry know running a solvent distillation unit can be an organizational headache. Buying a unit is a huge capital expense, it doesn’t reduce your waste as much as they said it would, and facility workers don’t like operating them.
But none of that needs to be true. Over the past 10 years we’ve worked extensively with the Flexible Packaging industry to create a solvent recycling solution that is easy and inexpensive. With our on-site solvent recycling Service365 you don’t need to worry about a capital expense. Our team provides ongoing maintenance and training whenever you need it. And we offer 24/7 monitoring and tracking no other company in the industry provides.
Reducing Flexible Packaging Waste and Costs
Save Big with a True Solvent Recycling Partner
A distillation unit is a huge capital expense for your company. Money that is better allocated to the production side of your business. And when you factor in the costs of ongoing maintenance, repairs, upgrades, and new training whenever there’s personnel turnover, it’s easy to wonder if you’re even saving any money.
Now imagine not having to write the big check to buy the unit, or not paying for maintenance, and never paying for upgrades or even a new unit.
With CleanPlanet’s solvent recycling service, the only expenses you have to worry about are the clean solvent our machine produces and much smaller waste disposal fees.
The only way we make money is if you’re saving money. Which means we’re here for the long haul. We have a vested interest in your machine performing at its best, every single day. In essence, we are a true solvent recycling partner helping you maximize your savings unlike anyone else in the industry.
- Clean, recycled solvent – You pay a discounted price on the clean, virgin like solvent our machines produce.
- Waste disposal – You’ll still have to dispose of waste from the distillation process but you’ll quickly realize those costs drop significantly because our machines are so effective.
