By utilizing reusable, oil-absorbent mats, you’ll not only make an environmentally friendly impact–you’ll also save money on inventory by refraining from purchasing new materials in the future.
Our Process for Reusable, Oil-Absorbent Mats
Why choose Closed Loop Recycling for your absorbent recycling needs?
Our recycling process extracts fluids from the absorbent products before laundering so that both the fluid and material can be reused. The process doesn’t create any waste, resulting in a true zero waste system to protect the environment and save you money. To put it plainly, we take three waste streams and turn it into three reusable products for your business needs!
CLR provides the largest line of reusable absorbents for a variety of industries. From automotive and aerospace to metal stamping and packaging, we help industrial businesses save money on product inventory by increasing their products’ longevity, such as absorbent pads and shop towels. No matter the application, we have a mat for that!
We’ll create a layout of your facility to showcase collection and distribution locations and routes to access these points, allowing our representatives to offer service at the point of collection, saving you time and money. Customized service schedules and online documentation portal allow you to manage your program with the click of a button.
Types of Oil-Absorbent Mats That We Recycle
Quilted floor mats absorb several liquids, such as water, food oils, cutting fluids, and coolants. Referred to as our “quick response” mat, quilted mats will get leaks and spills up from your floor immediately. Our quilted mats feature:
- Quick absorption for thinner
- Low lint accumulation
- Available in multiple sizes
Ideal for the automotive and oil and gas industries, hydro-mats are oil-only (only absorb oil-based liquids) but are useful for picking up oil spills and oil leaks anywhere on any surface. They are also thin yet durable and cost-effective.
Absorbing all non-hazardous liquids it comes in contact with, a poly mat keeps your facility floor protected from potentially harmful slip and falls. Capable of absorbing oils, coolants, and water, recycling-friendly poly mats retain their shelf life longer than your average disposable mat. Nicknamed “marathon mats,” they keep absorbing when other mats fall flat.
Our poly mats feature:
- Three thickness options
- A wide range of sizing options to fit any application
- Versatility and longevity
We provide our customers with a sock sub, a reusable, absorbent sock.. A disposable sock is cylindrical, forcing the user to proactively turn the sock to attain full saturation. The CLR sock sub is low profile, allowing for full saturation without extra effort from the user. Generally used in damming situations to stop a leak from spreading, the CLR sock sub will absorb as much fluid as a disposable sock with all the added environmental benefit that CLR provides.
Environmental Benefits of Recycling Your Mats
By investing in a laundering and recycling program, you’ll make a positive environmental impact and reduce the number of materials, like garage mats and absorbent pads, making their way onto beaches and into oceans, resulting in an effective environmental protection strategy.
Recycling also helps you work toward achieving your business’s green initiative by offering proper solutions for disposable products and giving you alternative product solutions, such as reusable absorbents and textiles.
Cost Benefits of Recycling Your Mats
Recycling is not only impactful on the environment; it also benefits your business’s budget. For example, when you don’t recycle but run an automotive shop, you’re responsible for purchasing your oil-absorbent mats and paying for costly disposal of saturated material—a massive inventory cost you’re strapped with. But when you take advantage of a laundering and recycling program, you’re cutting out the cost of purchasing new inventory. You’ll take on a recycling program fee, but you’ll still save money in the long run.
Our waste stream management process will have a substantial impact on your business. Our customers reused nearly two million pounds of solid waste and more than 300,000 gallons of liquid waste.
