Miller strives to use and/or develop the best technology available to minimize impact on the environment. We take pride in our ability to set benchmarks with respect to technologies and best practices in the industry. Our customers’ growing demand for recycling their waste has provided incentive for Miller to explore a variety of recycling options and alternatives. Through this process, we have adapted to this growing requirement and modified many of our internal processes to accommodate such requests while still providing cost effective solutions to our customers.
Miller commissioned a processing building, designed for the use of plastic container washing and shredding. The automated system prepares industrial plastics and pesticide containers to be sent for recycling.
Through various processes, Miller has established ways of recycling or repurposing several waste streams. Solvents and other organic substances are blended as an alternative fuel, alkaline waste is used to neutralize acidic waste, and spent catalyst is reacted out and used as a reagent for other processes. During the stabilization process, water is removed and then reused in other processes.
