Are you referring to cleaning solvent used on plotters for maps, etc? If the
material you are referring to is 100% solvent (minus residues from cleaning) a
simple alternative treatment option is solvent distillation (a.k.a. solvent
recovery). The solvent can be distilled on-site (you purchase a small solvent
still) or sent to a contractor who will perform the distillation for you. You
then have the option to take the material back and reuse it in or your
facility
or if using a vendor they can re-sell the reclaimed material.

Thank you for using PNEAC. We hope that you have found PNEAC to be helpful
