The escalating complexity of environmental legislation, regarding the use of chemicals in professional auto cleaning operations, is driving a major global shift in end-users adopting alternative cleaner, safer and greener cleaning methods that do not require the significant investment in chemical capture and recycling facilities as demanded by the Environmental Protection Agency and government compliance authorities.
Added to this, in the regions of the world where the use of water and detergents for commercial cleaning and domestic vehicle washing has restrictions or is banned outright, we perceive further exponential growth opportunities for eco-conscious entrepreneurs and businesses across all market sectors and continents in being able to deliver a complete waterless cleaning and detailing system without any compromise to quality of performance or finish they deliver to their customer’s vehicles whilst effectively, efficiently and significantly reducing their carbon footprints and impact on the environment.
By law, commercial operations have to ensure that none of their wastewater is going where it should not therefore hazardous products such as thinners, coolants, effluents, vehicle-cleaning shampoos, detergents, and oily wastewater, etc. must first be treated before entering the sewer system.
Therefore, the Automotive Industry in compliance with The Environmental Protective Agency has imposed certain guidelines for commercial operations that have to be stringently adhered to or face strict action if they are found to be non-compliant:
- They must have a sediment tank or a silt trap when draining the workshop floor, and an oil separation system for any oily or greasy wastewater to prevent effluents from directly entering the drains.
- They must clearly mark all stormwater drains as only rainwater should be allowed to enter them and must direct all wastewater to the sewerage system for correct treatment.
- They must store all chemicals and contaminated components (oil, brake fluid, battery acid, coolant, etc.) in sealed and leak-free containers or bins, making sure they are all undercover and clearly marked.
Certain waste liquids are classified as “traceable”, which means they require special monitoring and reporting with special disposal procedures. These include oils, transmission fluids, batteries, solvents, paint waste, and oil and fuel filters unless flushed and drained of oil. Traceable liquid wastes must be collected and disposed of by a licensed contractor for recycling or reuse.
