Scott Bader: 93.9% reduction in emissions compared to acetone

Terrafend worked with Scott Bader to reduce their use of acetone in their cleaning processes. Our Life Cycle Analysis from Tunley Environmental showed just how impressive the results are.


Scott Bader: 93.9% reduction in emissions compared to acetone

There are lots reasons to move away from solvent use in the cleaning process. It could be about increasing safety measures for your team, reducing the cost and impact of your hazardous waste production, or moving closer to your sustainability goals by reducing emissions.

When Scott Bader started working with Terrafend, the focus was on safety. However, by switching out the acetone they were using to clean to our Ambimization® methodology they discovered other benefits, including a huge saving around the amount of waste output, and a 93.9% reduction in emissions.

As Ambimization® Wash Fluid (AWF) is non-toxic and is water-based, it’s not only safer, but it can be re-used around 15 times more than acetone. This means less waste product to safely dispose of, and reduced costs around waste management too.
