Could you send me some information on your catalyst reclamation program?
Thanks!

Subject: Recycling of spent abatement catalyst used in Heatset Web Offset

Graphic Arts Printers with Heatset Web Offset use catalyst based pollution
control units to destroy VOC emission.
When catalyst loses its efficiency it is replaced by a batch of new
catalyst.

The removed catalyst being "Spent Material" meets the definition of a
"Solid Waste" generally characterized as a non hazardous waste. MSDS
of some catalyst manufacturers suggests Landfill as a disposal method
for such spent catalyst. Instead of lanfill, spent Catalyst waste can
essentially be used beneficially
for reclamation, and kept out of landfill. Future risk and liability
associated with landfill is thus avoided and most importantly, valuable
resources are conserved.

In most cases cost to the generator is nothing, $0.00.
