In 2001, GlyEco's founders started developing innovative new methods for recycling glycols. We saw a need in the market to improve the quality of recycled glycol and to clean more types of waste glycol in a business savvy way. Each type of industrial waste glycol contains a different set of impurities which traditional used antifreeze processing just doesn't clean effectively. And, many of the contaminents left behind using these processes - such as esters, organic acids and high dissolved solids - leave the recycled material risky to use in your car or machinery.
We spent the next few years developing a green chemistry solution which we think can change the way businesses handle waste glycol. Then we took time for market research and business analysis to figure out the best way to help our clients.
The result is our breakthrough patent pending processing system, GlyEco Technology™. Our inventive technology removes challenging pollutants, including esters, organic acids, high dissolved solids and high undissolved solids. Our technology has the added benefit of deftly clearing oil/hydrocarbons, additives and dyes which are typically found in used engine coolants. A rigorous quality assurance and control program which includes independent lab testing ensures consistently high quality, ASTM standard compliant recycled material our customers can rely on.
