What's the Problem?
Nowadays, solvents are a necessary part of the production process in many industries, as well as part of consumable products too, The issue with these solvents is that their basis raw material is petroleum, making them toxic and contaminating. This information is usually imperceptible by consumers, but some examples are: cleaning products, cosmetics, medicines, and even in processed foods. These solvents, although necessary, generate irreversible damage to the environment and cause health risks such as cancer, infertility and neurological diseases. This global problem unleashed a framework of regulations, which today consider these traditional solvents as hazardous waste and must be compulsorily treated before their disposal adding/increasing production costs dramatically.
