Solvent Recovery Program
The Solvent Recovery Program is successful in recovering acetone and methanol. The recovery laboratory consists of two spinning band distillation units which are capable of distilling up to 60 liters of solvents per day. Purified products are analyzed on the gas chromatography unit. Gas chromatography analysis ensures the quality of the product.
The program allows UBC faculty and staff to save on purchasing costs and the University saves on disposal costs.
