Veolia North America operates as a solvent recycling and resource recovery facility. Veolia recycles used solvents, distributes new solvents, and blends used solvents and oils to produce fuel substitutes. Approximately 80% of the used chemicals accepted by Veolia are returned to industry for reuse. The remainder is sent to a licensed hazardous waste management facility for treatment and/or disposal.
Veolia Azusa is a 7-acre facility located in Southern California in an industrialized area bordered by chemical manufacturing facilities, a flood control basin and park, and a brewery. The site consists of an office building and laboratory facilities, truck and rail loading/unloading facilities, extensive drum storage and tank farm areas, solvent reclamation process equipment, and paved parking areas for transport vehicles. The process equipment for solvent reclamation includes two distillation units and a thin film evaporator.
