New York State Solvent Cleaning Processes and Industrial Cleaning Solvents


NYS DEC Part 226 Information

As you may have heard, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) recently passed a law that affects cleaning processes that use solvents and equipment (such as sinks or rinsing machines) for both metal and non-metal parts. The change in the law was intended to reduce Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) emissions into the atmosphere. As a result, on December 1, 2020, New York State based businesses may need to find an alternative that meets these new requirements.

What does this mean to your business if you currently use solvents and a parts cleaner?  You may be required to switch to an aqueous parts cleaner to meet the 25 g/L VOC requirement.  Conversion from solvent to water-based cleaning is not new to us.  Mirachem has over 40 years’ experience in advanced aqueous technologies, combined with Crystal Clean’s two decades as a leader in the parts cleaning and environmental services.  Together, we will work with you to find the best total cleaning solution for your business.

Mirachem, and its environmental services partner Heritage-Crystal Clean, have prepared this special resource page to help New York businesses understand and implement the new standards required by NYCRR Parts 226-1 and 226-2.
