Environmental Benefits:

The environmental benefit of substituting a nonhazardous solvent for a hazardous solvent is the reduced amount of hazardous waste being released into the environment. International Paper has reduced or eliminated VOC emissions and worker exposure to a hazardous waste by product substitution and source reduction. The amount of solvent that was hazardous prior to changing to a nonhazardous waste was 19,000 lbs. per year. Due to improvements in the washers manufactured by Safety Kleen and product substitution, International Paper has reduced the amount of solvent use to 14,000 lbs. per year, all nonhazardous.
