Waste Disposal and Environmental Compliance—Should It Be The Last Option?

By | November 25, 2017

Before treating used coolants and machining fluids as waste to be hauled away or disposed hurriedly, a few questions should be considered.

                Waste Metal Disposal     

Is it safe for our environment?
Is it good for our brand value?
How will our customer react when they find out we are not doing a good job of waste disposal?
Can we reuse and recycle for better profitability?

Using quality industrial filtration products is shown to increase the life of the coolant, machining and other industrial fluids by 10 times or more. Moreover, separation of contaminants leads to an increase in scrap value and the level of recycling. In addition, proper separation results in effective treatment of the separated contaminants, thereby making them safe for release into the environment or public waste disposal channels.

Reuse—Profit Sustainably

An effective filtration system enhances coolant or machining fluid’s usable life considerably—more than 10-fold. This is the larger part of the waste disposed from most manufacturing companies using metals as base materials.

Because fluid re-usability is enhanced greatly when industrial filters are used, the amount of effluents released into the environment over the long-term is reduced drastically. It is obvious that coolants and other fluids when reused result in huge cost savings as well. However, the most valuable benefit is to the environment, which we all have an obligation towards—to leave it intact for our children.

Moreover, drastic reduction in waste volumes reduces waste handling charges. In addition, publicity gained from such good practices can contribute tremendously to brand value. Reuse is a wise choice, both monetarily and ethically.

Recycle and Save

Devices such as magnetic separators, magnetic filters, and other industrial filters can separate out the minutest metal particles from other non-metallic contaminants such as cotton waste, which can cause bacterial growth in the coolants or machining fluids if not filtered and treated appropriately. This can be hazardous not only for the public at large, but also for you and your employees.

Separation can lead to almost total recycling of expensive metallic waste, thereby making investments in industrial filtration systems both economic and environment friendly. Recycling practices are also becoming a major part of brand value and the sentiment customers and investors have towards your company. Therefore, recycling can potentially add to your revenues by enhancing the goodwill your stakeholders have towards your company and its brand.

Scientific disposal can be Valuable

Once waste materials are separated out, each waste type can be treated appropriately before disposal; this approach would help in avoiding expensive fines and loss of brand value from adverse publicity in the media arising from flawed waste disposal practices. Filtration systems have been empirically known to be less-expensive than chemical treatment plants and contract hauling of waste.

Environmentally friendly filtration systems need not be expensive! You can be known as a friend of the environment and be profitable, too!
