What are organic solvents?

The terms organic solvents and solvent residues cover a large number of different groups of substances.

These materials are generated from a wide variety of industrial manufacturing, mining and related industries.

Organic solvents are classified as ‘hazardous’ or ‘regulated’ waste depending on the risk the material may have on the community or the environment when handled improperly during either transport or disposal.

The transport and disposal of hazardous liquid waste is regulated by state environmental authorities and must be tracked from collection and transport through to disposal at licensed facilities using compliant chain of responsibility  procedures. Under these laws, it is a business’ responsibility to ensure their hazardous liquid waste is being transported and disposed of by certified professionals to licensed facilities following these procedures.

Managing organic solvents in Victoria

In Victoria organic solvents and solvent residues waste tracking and transport is regulated under the Australian Code for the Transport of Dangerous Goods by Road & Rail (ADG).

Waste transaction tracking requires up to four contaminants to be identified, where applicable, listing contaminants in order of potential hazard.

Recycling organic solvents

Solvent waste can be recycled into a variety of grades of reusable solvent and gun washes. The recycled solvent can also be used to provide alternative fuel sources to manufacturers such as the cement industry

The redistilled solvent can be used as an alternative fuel for cement kilns. This can be done through a solvent distillation process, in which the solvents are treated with heat to break the solvent down into its component parts. Distillation can also produce saleable grade solvent which then re-joins the circular economy as a recovered resource for reuse.

REMONDIS aims to work to recover and reuse organic solvent and solvent residues through our fully EPA licensed service, ensuring minimal impact on the environment.

What happens to your organic solvents?

We’ll discuss recycling or disposal options with you, based on the volume, location, storage and type of material to be managed.

After your hazardous liquids are safely collected and transported, they are taken to one of our licensed liquid processing facilities. Where possible, we will always recover resources using our network of licensed processing facilities, before responsibly disposing of materials that cannot be recovered.
