Recovered Ethyl Acetate in NJ

TEA and Versenex

There’s a lot of 24,980 lbs of Versenex 80 and  16,000 lbs of TEA 99 that has been contaminated with aliphatic polyglycols.
The truck previously contained Dowanol and Butyl Cellosolve.  It was supposedly cleaned out, then re-loaded with Versenex and TEA.  At the delivery location it was discovered to have a green-tinted layer at the bottom which contained the aliphatic polyglycols.
All of these components could be used in a detergent/tank cleaning application, 
The material has now been retested and attached are pictures and analytical as you can see the material looks very good!
