Environmental Benefits:

XeTel has eliminated CFC emissions by source reduction. From a solid waste perspective, the change from Freon 113 to Axarel 32 solvent also resulted in a change from a hazardous waste stream to a nonhazardous waste stream. Nineteen drums of waste Freon 113 were shipped in 1992 versus eight drums of waste Axarel 32 shipped in 1994. Converting from the Freon 113 based cleaning system, XeTel eliminated the waste stream and the large quantity of associated waste. This in turn enabled XeTel Corporation to change its generator status from Large Quantity Generator to Small Quantity Generator. The elimination of Freon 113 resulted in a reduction of 4.8 tons of hazardous waste disposal per year and 26.5 tons of TRI releases per year.
