Recycling a social responsibility to nature

Uncontrolled waste is one of the problems in our environment today. There are a number of things that we can do to help and the only answer is to recycle. In waste disposal we have to segregate the biodegradable from the non-biodegradable. Biodegradable wastes are garbage that is eco-friendly that eventually becomes part of the earth and soil. These are compost materials such as fruit and vegetable peels, paper and etc. When these wastes decomposed and mixed with soil it becomes quite useful in gardening because it can make the soil more productive. Non-biodegradable waste on the other hand is garbage that cannot possibly turn into dirt for a long period of time. These are waste such as grocery bags, plastic and Styrofoam. These non-biodegradable materials can be recycled to help our environment and to minimize our waste.

How about waste solutions? There are many companies that use solvent to create their finish products and it is also a known fact that the wastes are also harmful to the environment. There is such a thing as solvent recycle. The solvent recycler utilizes distillation to separate a process solvent from its contaminant for reuse. The process consists of heating the mixture until the solvent reaches its vaporization point. Once the solvent vaporizes, it enters a condenser unit and then it cools down into liquid form leaving the contaminant behind. What is so great in these solvent recyclers is the volume of usable solvent from the mixture will nearly approach 99.9% and reach purity levels equal to virgin product. It is cost effective and at the same time we are exercising our social responsibility to nature.
