Green vapor degreasers are solvents that are boiled so the vapors can be used to clean machine parts. The solvents are able to be recycled for continuous use. As a more environmentally friendly option for cleaning, green vapor degreasers have benefits for the environment and the company.
Advantages of Green Vapor Degreasers
A few key factors that encourage the use of green vapor degreasers include:
- Lower global warming potential
- Smaller carbon footprint
- Lower energy consumptions
- Low worker exposure
- Decrease the waste stream
- Comply with federal, state, and local regulations
With a lower energy consumption using green vapor degreasers, they provide facilities a money saving opportunity since the cost of the product is similar to that of the environmentally harmful degreasers. Also, low worker exposure allows for a safer work environment for employees as they use the chemical to clean.
Low Environmental Impact
By substituting outdated and environmentally harmful chlorinated and brominated solvents with green vapor degreasers, problems associated with ground water and air quality decrease or even vanish. Chlorinated and brominated solvents emit toxic chemicals that hurt the environment.
Green vapor degreasers are considered non-hazardous air pollutants and do not require National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) permits to operate while chlorinated and brominated degreasers are hazardous air pollutants and require permits during all operations.
Switching to Green Vapor Degreasers
Offering the same clean without harming the environment, green vapor degreasers are becoming a common substitute for chlorinated and brominated solvents. Some solvents that are being replaced include:
- Trichloroethylene (TCE)
- Methylene Chloride (MC)
- Perchloroethylene (Perc)
- Bromopropane (nPB)
- N-Methyl Pyrrolidone (NMP)
By replacing these harmful degreasers with a greener option, facilities no longer have to stress about air pollute permits. Green vapor degreasers do not require air pollutant permits thus protecting the facilities from facing any penalties or fines associated with not complying to air pollution permits and regulations.
