"Recovering used IPA (Isopropyl Alcohol)"



2005

I am the Pollution Control Officer of an Electroplating Company here in the Philippines. Our company used Isopropryl alcohol for washing some materials. Because of this, we are generating Used IPA. I would like to know other means of reusing said Used IPA or its means of recovery or disposal.

Thank you...

Try Distilling the IPA and see if its of sufficient puriety for re-use.

In the USA there are several companies that sell small stills for recovering solvents. The IPA will be fairly pure, but not as good as new material.

Our group is using IPA for cleaning. Our problem is how to disposed used IPA?

Is there a company in the Philippines that handles IPA disposal (within Metro Manila or neighboring provinces)?
