We help your business to implement more efficient processes and save costs. We'll help you establish a safe, reliable, and environmentally friendly solution for solvent recovery and solvent recycling.

Environmental and Economic Benefits

If your industry uses alcohol based solvents such as Methanol, Ethanol, Isopropyl Alcohol (IPA) / Isopropanol, Butanol, Glycol or variations of these products, you could cut you costs by recycling these solvents.

Maratek’s solvent recycling and recovery program is designed to help your facility accomplish two major goals, which will both provide positive environmental and economic benefits for your company: 

    1. Reducing liquid waste disposal expenses and; 
    2. Recycling of your liquid solvent waste such as solvent waste, alcohol waste, blanket wash and liquid cleaning solvents. 

    Solvent recovery equipment can be a costly investment, and immediate savings can be found through the MaraSolve solvent recycling program.

    Maratek will pick up your waste solvents and bring it to our liquid recycling facility in Bolton, Ontario. Your solvent is tested, segregated from other companies solvents and run as a batch through our solvent distillation technology. The resulting recycled product will be of virgin quality and will be available to you for purchase at a rate lower than your current liquid virgin solvent purchase price.

    You’ll save money, improve your environmental stewardship with no additional effort or upfront costs on your part.

    The residues from the solvent recycling processes (along with various organic waste) which cannot be economically recycled, are processed by Maratek into liquid fuel products to replace, for example, fossil fuels for cement kilns. We also offer a competitive waste solvent acquisition service to obtain used solvents for recycling. These are then sold back into the world market via a wide range of outlets.


    How it Works

    We can take a customer’s own waste solvent and process it to meet an agreed high specification. The recycled material is then returned to the customer for reuse.

    Additionally our solvent recycling service seeks out sources of used solvents for reprocessing into high quality recovered solvents that can then be resold.

    The type of materials we look for, and available for resale, include a wide range of solvents.

    Customers wanting someone to take away their own used solvents, or wanting to buy used and recovered solvents should contact us for further information.

    Maratek Environmental is a market leader in cost effectiveness when dealing with used solvents. This success is achieved by investing in the development of people, by regularly upgrading our ministry approved liquid waste depot, and ensuring the highest levels of productivity.

    Maratek has a waste collection service and uses its own ministry approved fleet of vehicles and highly trained and experienced company drivers, to ensure the safe transport of hazardous materials from any site in Canada.
