Areas of Expertise:

We have developed a globally unique purification method whereby we purify used glycol so that it can be re-used.

In this manner, we will save the Earth’s resources since glycol is extracted from crude oil and is a non-renewable resource. In addition, glycol is a scarce commodity since demand is consistently higher than the supply. Glycol is used in a number of different industries and there is an abundance of areas of use. Below is a list of some of the most common segments and areas of use for glycol.

Research Interests:

We have developed a globally unique purification method whereby we purify used glycol so that it can be re-used.

From used glycol, we produce, with our globally unique model, new re-usable glycol with concentrations up to 98.5% depending on our customers’ requirements. With our re-used glycol, chemical companies are able to offer more eco-friendly options.

Today, most used glycol is incinerated. We currently collaborate with a number of recycling companies to take a more eco-friendly step toward managing glycol.

Recyctec has agreements with some municipalities for glycol management. Municipalities work according to the so-called ‘waste hierarchy’, which provides a hierarchy for the order in which various methods for managing waste should be used. It is based on the EU directive and is a method for achieving the EU’s environmental objectives. In co-operation with us, they will be able to contribute to taking glycol management from step four to step two in the waste hierarchy, meaning instead of energy extraction (incineration) of the glycol, we jointly take the step to re-use.

With Recyctec’s assistance, airports are able to gain both financial and environmental advantages. Airports will be able to become nearly self-sufficient since the glycol can be re-used time and time again with Recyctec’s help.

Working alongside Recyctec, the automotive industry can actually impact today’s glycol management by ensuring the quality of the handling process and filling with re-used glycol. For example, each new vehicle that rolls out from an automotive plant can be refilled with re-used glycol, which will enable automotive manufacturers to take another step in keeping their environmental promises. Unfortunately, glycol is in short supply and demand is always greater. Glycol is also a non-renewable natural resource, meaning the supply will run out. This is one of the reasons that the re-use of glycol is becoming increasingly important.
