Solvent recycling - summary of responses



Thanks to all of you who took the time to respond to the question related
how your state counts recycled solvent.  The responses varied and a summary
is attached.  I'd love to hear from someone in Minnesota or others, so keep
the responses coming if your state is not already represented.

Many responded saying that "closed loop" systems or systems that recycle the
solvent as "part of the process in a totally enclosed unit" are exempt from
the requirement of counting the solvent each time it is recycled.  I did not
go into that detail in my question, but Kansas is in line with other states
by only requiring these solvents be counted once.

Thanks again!
