Expanded West Carrollton Solvent Recovery Facility Opens

Safety, Sustainability and Technology Driven 

Veolia has redesigned and rebuilt its solvent processing facility in West Carrollton, Ohio, adding new safety systems, expanded capabilities and enhanced sustainability practices. The facility, which celebrated its grand re-opening on June 20, 2012, serves the automotive, chemical, pharmaceutical, printing and resin manufacturing industries across the Ohio Valley and beyond. 

Our rebuilt West Carrollton facility boasts expanded processing capabilities that include fuel blending, solvent recovery, and non-hazardous waste consolidation for most technologies. The plant also processes household hazardous waste and lab pack waste. In total, the faciilty repurposes and reclaims over 8 million gallons of oil, paint, solvent and other hazardous materials annually, and converts them back into reusable materials.

In the area of solvent processing, the West Carrollton facility has tolling, beneficial reuse and reclamation capabilities, offering waste generators a full suite of advanced recovery options for their spent solvents. Many solvents, including NMP, PGMEA, THF and methlynchloride, can be reclaimed to 99.5% purity - minimizing solvent waste and maximizing reuse opportunities.
  • Tolling: Cleans your solvent to predetermined specifications and returns it to your business for reuse, helping you reduce costs.
  • Beneficial reuse: Converts used solvents into products for re-use in manufacturing commerical products, helping you minimize overall waste volumes
  • Reclamation: Solvents are cleaned to given specifications and sold to third parties who use it as a replacement for virgin solvent
In addition to West Carrollton, Veolia operates three other solvent recovery plants across the United States. Further information on our solvent recovery offering is available here.
