Fiberglass with its versatile properties has become a material of choice for several applications.

There are two major types of waste generated while manufacturing of fiberglass:

  1. Spent acetone from resin and gelcoat clean-up 
  2. Waste resin and gelcoat from raw materials that can no longer be used in production

If not treated properly at source, these wastes are Hazardous in nature.
