I agree with Gary Jones -- there is no clear cut answer to this question. You need
to remember that it is the solvent on the towel that creates the waste problem.
Another avenue might be to look at solvents that are considered non hazardous when
disposed.

While it appears to be a clear cut issue -- the decision on which type of towel to
be used is clearly facility speicific depending on their needs within the
manufacuturing process.
