GlyEco, Inc. has increased its waste glycol recycling capacity 400 percent at its Minnesota processing center.
During the first quarter, GlyEco relocated its Minnesota facility from 2,000 sq.ft. to a 10,000 sq.ft. stand-alone building which provides improved logistics for large volume operations.
Additionally, GlyEco completed a series of technology and equipment upgrades, including new main circulation equipment, an advanced pumping system, and secondary containment system.
“Our recent upgrades at this facility enable us to produce larger batches of recycled glycol from multiple new waste streams,” stated John Lorenz, chief executive officer of GlyEco. “We can now process ethylene and propylene waste glycols as well as ethylene oxide waste in Minnesota. We intend to ramp sales by expanding our services into the heat transfer fluids and aircraft deicing waste markets. We also intend to service a larger geographic territory at this facility.”
