Purchasing the best industrial absorbents for your business is a smart investment, but how smart is it to repurchase after they’ve been used? Closed Loop Recycling explains why it’s crucial for the environment—and your business’s bottom line—to utilize reusable absorbents.
Why Reusable Absorbents Are Important
Recycling reusable absorbents makes a positive impact on the environment and improves your business’s bottom line:
Save Money With Reusable Absorbents
Let’s say you don’t recycle and run an industrial facility. As a business owner and production facilitator, you’re in charge of purchasing absorbent pads or mats and socks for a cleaner, safer workplace. This is a continuous and substantial inventory cost.
However, when you take advantage of a laundering and recycling program, you eliminate the cost of purchasing new inventory. When you use an industrial laundering service to clean your reusable absorbents, you take on a laundering service fee, but you save money in the long run.
Make the World a Better Place With Reusable Absorbents
By investing in a laundering and recycling program, you make a positive environmental impact. Not only does it reduce the number of materials you send to landfills, but it also reduces your carbon footprint.
Recycling also helps you achieve your business’s green initiatives by providing the proper solutions for disposable products and giving you alternative product solutions like reusable absorbent mats and other textiles.
Industrial Absorbent Solutions
A variety of industrial absorbent solutions are required in work environments that are prone to oil, coolant, and solvent spills:
Multiple industries rely on quality absorbent mats or pads to mitigate employee injuries that result from spilled liquids. Choosing the right industrial absorbent mat for proper spill control depends on the type of application you’re tackling.
Quilted mats are an excellent reusable mat choice for thin fluids and “reactive” applications like oil and water, food oil, and coolant spills. Known as a “quick response mat,” quilted mats are highly absorbent, reusable mats that clear multiple types of liquid spills off of your facility floor immediately.
A likely choice for oil-only applications, oil-absorbent hydromats pick up oil spills anywhere on any surface. Oil-absorbent hydromats are also “hydrophobic,” so they repel water and soak up oil only.
Poly Absorbent Mats
Poly absorbent mats are a great spill control solution for everyday use, especially with “proactive” applications. The most versatile absorbent mat on the market, poly absorbent mats soak up three times as much oil as disposable mats and work for any non-hazardous fluid across any industry.
Standard socks only have one section that absorbs liquids, resulting in flipping the sock several times for maximum use. Absorbent sock subs are a reusable alternative and are capable of holding as much liquid as the standard disposable sock. Equipped with an anti-trip design, sock subs handle oil and water-based liquid spills.
