Solvent Recovery.

Solvent recovery technology allows the recycling of spent solvents, which constitute a significant share of hazardous waste.Depending on the composition of the solvent waste stream and the intended second use, after recycling, different 3V Tech technologies can be applied, maintaining the core process of evaporation/distillation. The recovery process takes place at temperature and vacuum conditions determined after simulations and/or testing. Different solvent may be recovered: Methanol, Ethanol, Chloroform, DMSO, …

Thanks to the economic perspective for the industrial user, the solvent recovery technology addresses the needs of many industrial sectors other than the solvent recycling industry, such as the chemical, agrochemical and pharmaceutical industries, with on-site solutions for internal recovery, not only from spent solvents but also from waste water.

Our long expertise in Thermal Separation Processes also makes us a valuable partner in cases of Spent Acids Recovery.

A Solvent recovery plant needs the following utilities and plant design will take into consideration their (un)availability at site:

  1. Electricity    
  2. Steam or hot oil    
  3. Instrument air    
  4. Cooling water

A Solvent recovery plant can be a self-standing and independent unit or can be part of an integrated plant concept as outlined in a simplified schematic showing the main additional section hereafter: 

  1. Reaction       
  2.  Solid/liquid separation    
  3. Drying
