Propylene glycol is used for aircraft de-icing. Perhaps a local
airport would be interested in using the material.
I thought newer vehicles also use proplyene rather than ethylene
glycol but you may have to check this out in more detail. As a
result, perhaps automotive garages, or anyone who maintains an
automotive fleet, may have a use for the material.
Since maximum performance is obtained with a near 50-50 dilution
with water, you shouldn't have a problem provided the product is
greater than a 50% concentration. Another issue you may wish to
keep one eye on is if the glycol has any additives...rust
inhibitors may be one additive necessary for automotive use.
Mobile recyclers of ethylene glycol could serve as a good source
of information on who may be using propylene glycol. Mobile
recyclers may also take the material since they are capable of
servicing generators of waste proplyene glycol with the same
equipment used for ethylene glycol recovery, and they are capable
of adjusting additives which is done as part of waste glycol
In PA, glycol recovery operations require a general permit so
lists of these operations are available. Try checking with your
state's waste management division to find out if mobile reclaimers
are regulated/tracked. Telephone listings or garages should also
be able to identify reclaimers in your area.
