At Hydrite Chemical, we believe in protecting today's environment as well as tomorrow's environment. Hydrite’s policy on internal waste minimization ensures responsible manufacturing with the least impact on the environment. Our team of regulatory professionals, operations management and improvement engineers relentlessly focus on process efficiency and waste minimization. The 3 principles that guide our daily decisions are:
- Minimizing waste generation
- Recycling or reusing materials in an environmentally sound way
- Completing regulatory compliance with respect to treatment and disposal of internally generated waste and selecting environmentally sound disposal options
For example, our manufacturing sites employ process recycle streams when possible to reduce waste generated. Our offices and production facilities limit non-hazardous, solid waste generated by following our outlined operating procedure for re-using or recycling paper, cardboard, and containers, thereby reducing the quantity of landfill waste generated.
Hydrite's efforts do not stop at our property line!
Hydrite is committed to helping our customers in their sustainability efforts in three major categories. We reduce chemical, water and energy usage in order to limit unnecessary waste by offering services and products tailored to our customer needs. For example, we develop products that work at lower concentration than traditional cleaning products, require less rinsing, and work at lower temperatures.
Hydrite remains committed to helping our partners with their sustainability efforts by developing and providing products with minimal effect on our environment. With this in mind, we have worked to create products that are classified by the EPA as biodegradable and having low aquatic impact. Hydrite Chemical Co. has low sodium, low EC, and reduced solids programs. We supply our products in bulk when possible, by rail or tanker and use returnable drums and totes to reduce the amount of plastic our customers send to landfills.
Some of our sustainable offerings include:
- Single phase cleaners
- Caustic additives
- Built caustic products
- Low sodium and low chloride cleaning products
- Non-phosphate products
- Low temperature cleaning
- Process aids for reducing energy consumption on heat transfer equipment
- Additive Optimization solutions
- Ethanol solutions
- Membrane cleaning
- Facility audit program
- We have developed PLC based equipment that controls and records usage to prevent over-use. This equipment also performs diagnostic testing on cleaning cycles to eliminate chemical solutions being sent to waste treatment and ensures the mechanics of the system are operating correctly
