PathTrue™ Laboratory Solvent Recyclers

LaboratorySolvent Recycling in the Laboratory

Solvents are an essential component in many laboratory processes and experiments. However, they can also be costly, both in terms of the initial purchase price and the cost of disposing of them after use. That's why solvent recycling in the laboratory is becoming increasingly popular as a means of reducing both costs and environmental impact.

Solvent recycling in the lab is beneficial for a number of reasons:
  • Reduces the amount of waste generated and the cost of waste disposal
  • Benefits the environment
  • Leads to significant cost savings as the purified solvents can be used over and over again
  • Lessens the need to purchase new solvents


CBG Biotech systems recycle your solvent and help you reclaim your time.  With our fully-automated recycling systems, labs virtually eliminate the hassle of ordering, storing and disposing of solvents while lowering their organization’s waste generator status with the EPA.

Case Study

As a result of the program's continued success, the University is saving thousands of dollars on acetone purchases and acetone waste disposal, and has reduced its environmental footprint by diverting acetone waste from traditional disposal treatment by incineration, reducing energy and fuel usage from manufacturing and shipping new product, and reducing fuel usage from shipping waste.


“The dermatopathology lab has been using CBG’s solvent recyclers for many years. We use the recycled solvents in tissue processors and in our linear staining process. It has significantly helped with cost savings and the frequency of purchases of new stock solvents has been greatly diminished since the recycled solvents are used in place of new stock with the same efficiency.”
