RE: Place to List Pollution Control Equipment

The is a site on the web for recycling "everything".  It includes 
equipment listings although they are listed by industry type.  The 
site is Recycler's World and the web site is:


My first question is "Why does a piece of uninstalled idle equipment 
have an effect on changing a process to a less polluting one?"  If 
they are currently using a solvent maskant without the equipment it 
seems to me that a change to an aqueous based maskant would be based 
on the economics of the process without the carbon adsorption unit 
entering into the calculation.

Subject: 	Place to List Pollution Control Equipment

One of the facilities I am working with is seriously considering 
converting from
a solvent maskant system to a aqueous based system.  One of the 
factors in
their decision is whether they can find a buyer for a Carbon 
System.   Does anyone know where one might list good used air 
control equipment either on the web or some publications?  We are 
already in
touch with CMA, Air and Waste Management, and Printing Association to 
if their might be a venue there.

Below are the specs on the equipment.  If you know a party interested, 
I can
provide company name and phone to that person:
