Technology News: MacLean Engineering

MacLean Engineering, based in Ontario, Canada, has developed new processing technology for closed-loop aerosol and paint container recycling.

Two of its new HazPak recycling systems have recently been installed in North America, with one just completing its first year of commercial operations in Quebec, Canada. The system was designed to process an array of hazardous waste streams, including household paint, aerosol cans and handheld propane canisters.

A second is currently being commissioned in the US Midwest. This has been specifically designed to process up to 9,000 aerosol cans per hour while capturing and separating the propellant gases, liquid contents and the metals within a safe “no Oxygen” atmosphere. The three waste streams are stored, ready for a 100% recycling solution. According to MacLean, this technology has been accepted as “Best Available Technology” in the UK and the EU.
