Onsite chemical recycling is rapidly becoming the preferred method for acquiring and managing petrochemicals. Cost savings, in the form of reduced chemical costs, reductions in hazardous waste and reduced downtime were the primary motivations for adopting onsite chemical recycling.

Similarly, Americans are embracing new technologies in order to keep their monthly energy bills from becoming unmanageable – all in an effort to combat escalating oil prices.
