We are a leading specialty chemical company, leveraging technology and innovation to focus on vertically integrated, eco-friendly manufacturing, customer service and distribution solutions. Our eight facilities, including the recently acquired 14-20 million gallons per year, ASTM E1177 EG-1, glycol re-distillation plant in West Virginia, deliver superior quality glycol products that meet or exceed ASTM quality standards, including a wide spectrum of ready to use antifreezes and additive packages for antifreeze/coolant, gas patch coolants and heat transfer fluid industry, throughout North America. Our team's extensive experience in the chemical field, including direct experience with reclamation of all types of glycols, gives us the ability to process a wide range of feedstock streams, formulate and produce unique products and has earned us an outstanding reputation in our markets.

We have two segments.  Consumer and Industrial. Consumer’s principal business activity is the processing of waste glycol into high-quality recycled glycol products, specifically automotive antifreeze, and related specialty blended antifreeze, which we sell in the automotive and industrial end markets. We operate six processing and distribution centers located in the eastern region of the United States. Industrial’s consists of two divisions. WEBA develops, manufactures and markets additive packages for the antifreeze/coolant, gas patch coolants and heat transfer industry, throughout North America and RS&T which operates a 14-20 million gallons per year, ASTM E1177 EG-1, glycol re-distillation plant in West Virginia, which processes waste glycol into virgin quality recycled glycol for sale to industrial customers worldwide. 

Consumer segment

Our Consumer segment has processing and distribution centers located in (1) Minneapolis, Minnesota, (2) Indianapolis, Indiana, (3) Lakeland, Florida, (4) Rock Hill, South Carolina, (5) Tea, South Dakota, and (6) Landover, Maryland. The Minneapolis, Minnesota, Lakeland, Florida, Rock Hill, South Carolina and Tea, South Dakota facilities have distillation equipment and operations for recycling waste glycol streams as well as blending equipment and operations for mixing glycol and other chemicals to produce finished products for sale to third party customers, while the Indianapolis, Indiana and Landover, Maryland facilities currently only have blending equipment and operations for mixing glycol and other chemicals to produce finished products for sale to third party customers. We estimate that the monthly processing capacity of our four facilities with distillation equipment is approximately 100,000 gallons of ready to use finished products. We have invested significant time and money into increasing the capacity and actual production of our facilities. Our average monthly production was approximately 40,000 gallons in the first quarter of 2016 as compared to approximately 60,000 gallons in the fourth quarter of 2016. Our processing and distribution centers utilize a fleet of trucks to collect waste material for processing and delivering recycled glycol products directly to retail end users at their storefront, which is typically 50-100 gallons per customer order. Collectively, we directly service approximately 5,000 generators of waste glycol. To meet the delivery volume needs of our existing customers, we supplement our collected and processed glycol with new or virgin glycol that we purchase in bulk from various suppliers. In addition to our retail end users, we also sell our recycled glycol products to wholesale or bulk distributors who, in turn, sell to retail end users specifically as automotive or specialty blended antifreeze. In certain markets we also sell windshield washer fluids which we do not recycle.

We have deployed our proprietary technology across our six processing distribution centers, allowing for safe and efficient handling of waste streams, application of our processing technology and Quality Control & Assurance Program (“QC&A”), sales of high-quality glycol products, and data systems allowing for tracking, training, and further development of our products and service.

Our Consumer segment product offerings include:

 

·

High-Quality Recycled Glycols - Our technology allows us to produce glycols which meet ASTM standards and can be used in any industrial application.

 

 

·

Recycled Antifreeze - We formulate several universal recycled antifreeze products to meet ASTM and/or OEM manufacturer specifications for engine coolants. In addition, we custom blend recycled antifreeze to customer specifications.

 

 

·

We coordinate large batches of waste glycol to be picked up from generators and delivered to our processing centers for recycling or in some cases to be safely disposed.

 

 

·

Windshield Washer Fluid - In certain markets we sell windshield washer fluids which we do not recycle.

We currently sell and deliver all of our products in bulk containers (55 gallon barrels, 250 gallon totes, etc.) or variable metered bulk quantities. 

We began developing innovative new methods for recycling glycols in 1999. We recognized a need in the market to improve the quality of recycled glycol being returned to retail customers. In addition, we believed through process technology, systems, and footprint we could clean more types of waste glycol in a more cost efficient manner. Each type of industrial waste glycol contains a different list of impurities which traditional waste antifreeze processing does not clean effectively. Additionally, many of the contaminants left behind using these processes - such as esters, organic acids and high dissolved solids - leave the recycled material risky to use in vehicles or machinery.

Our proprietary and patented technology removes difficult pollutants, including esters, organic acids, high dissolved solids and high un-dissolved solids in addition to the benefit of clearing oil/hydrocarbons, additives and dyes that are typically found in used engine coolants. Our QC&A program (Quality Control & Assurance) seeks to ensure consistently high quality, ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) standard compliant recycled material. Our products are trusted in all vehicle makes and models, regional fleet, local auto, and national retailers. Our proprietary QC&A program is managed and supported by dedicated process and chemical engineering staff, requires periodic onsite field audits, and ongoing training by our facility managing partners.

Industrial Segment

Our Industrial segment consists of two divisions: WEBA, our additives business and RS&T, our glycol re-distillation plant in West Virginia.

WEBA develops, manufactures and markets additive packages for the antifreeze/coolant, gas patch coolants and heat transfer industry, throughout North America. We believe WEBA is one of the largest companies serving the North American additive market. WEBA's METALGUARD® additive package product line includes one-step inhibitor systems, which give our customers the ability to easily make various types of antifreeze concentrate and 50/50 coolants for all automobiles, heavy-duty diesel engines, stationary engines in gas patch and other applications. METALGUARD additive packages cover the entire range of coolant types from basic green conventional to the newest extended life OAT antifreezes of all colors. Our heat transfer fluid additives allow our customers to make finished heat transfer fluids for most industry applications including all-aluminum systems. The METALGUARD heat transfer fluids include light and heavy-duty fluids, both propylene and ethylene glycol based, for various operating temperatures. These inhibitors cover the industry standard of phosphate-based inhibitors as well as all-organic (OAT) inhibitors for specific pH range and aluminum system requirements.

All of the METALGUARD products are tested at our in-house laboratory facility and by third-party laboratories to assure conformance. We use the standards set by ASTM (American Society of Testing Materials) for all of our products. All of our products pass the most current ASTM standards and testing for each type of product. Our manufacturing facility conforms to the highest levels of process quality control including ISO 9001 certification.

RS&T operates a 14-20 million gallons per year, ASTM E1177 EG-1, glycol re-distillation plant in West Virginia, which processes waste glycol into virgin quality recycled glycol for sale to industrial customers worldwide. The facility is uniquely designed to process industrial waste glycol. It utilizes the only currently active process that produces a product that both meets the virgin glycol antifreeze grade specification, ASTM E1177 EG-1, and achieves the important aesthetic requirement for most applications of having no odor. It is the largest glycol re-distillation plant in North America, with a capacity of 14-20 million gallons per year, several times higher processing capacity than the next largest glycol recycling facility. The facility, located at the Dow Institute Site in Institute, WV, includes five distillation columns, three wiped-film evaporators, heat exchangers, processing and storage tanks, and other processing equipment. The facility’s tanks include feedstock storage capacity of several million gallons and finished goods storage capacity of several million gallons.
