Proper disposal of aerosol cans

DCD MAC01 Model

A MacLean solution for the environment.

HazPak is a complete, turn-key system for the safe and proper disposal of aerosol cans and hazardous waste. The HazPak process uses an inert nitrogen technology that is exclusive to MacLean, and is considered Best Available Technology (BAT) in the industry.

Unlike the Carbon Capture process that only captures the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that gasses emit, HazPak captures gasses in their entirety, preparing them for waste-to-energy applications in a near-zero emissions environment.

The HazPak process provides an industry-leading “100% solution” for the recycling of cans and their components, while also raising the bar on safety, efficiency and throughput in aerosol recycling. At its standard capacity, a HazPak system recycles up to 9000 aerosol cans per hour. It can also process paints, handheld propane cylinders, shellacs and solvents.

MacLean Engineering and the environment: a match purpose-built for innovative, practical solutions.
