The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has been doing an excellent job weeding out hazardous chemical solvents. The EPA discovers potentially harmful cleaning solvents, performs its due diligence through myriad research concerning the chemical cleaning solvent, and if regarded as harmful, will create a notice informing any industrial company using this chemical cleaning solvent must cease and desist no later than the date provided by the EPA. For example, beginning January 1, 2015, companies that practice industrial cleaning will no longer be lawfully allowed to use the chemical solvent HCFC-225, also known as “AK225,” which was a common precision solvent used for high end cleaning. The EPA will provide detailed information explaining the reasons for banning the chemical solvent.
So, what does an industrial organization do if they are currently using the soon to be banned cleaning solvent? Fortunately, the EPA will provide a list of replacement cleaning solvent options that can take the place of what your business has in use. While the switching to a different cleaning solvent might seem like an easy enough task to accomplish, especially when what might appear as a more than enough time period to make the change, industrial businesses might struggle to transition to a different solvent in time, and could find themselves in deep trouble with the EPA. However, there are options that include green initiative companies that help keep industrial businesses ahead of EPA regulations with already discovered, studied, tested, and approved solvent replacement strategies.
