Recycling Automotive Fluid

Automotive fluid can be very poisonous once it makes contact with organic substances or released to the environment. This fluid dissolves easily in water, and just a small amount of this fluid can contaminate a large volume of water. A small drop of automotive fluid is capable of surviving for years as they are gradually entering the water table.

Automotive fluid is to be treated as a hazardous waste, by not disposing it on the ground, in the garbage can, septic tanks, and any other places. This fluid gives off ethylene and propylene glycol, which is used as antifreeze, and if combined with water, it will spread further to the environment due to an increased mobility. This ethylene has a sweet taste that may attract household pets, and when they consume it, they can die in just a short period of time. And the level of hazard will once used in a vehicle.

Thankfully, a recycling automotive system has been developed to reprocess these hazardous fluids into its original form to be used again by vehicles. Nowadays, this recycling system can be found in local garages or other service centers. But with motor oil, it experiences multiple chemical transformation due to the violent conditions to which it is exposed. And when it is recycled, its lubricating properties lower down, rendering it rather ineffective for reuse.

It is crucial to keep automotive fluid from roaming free to the environment. It gets even more deadly when it solutes with water, because normal human eyes could not detect it. So the most sensible solution for this environmental issue would be to recycle this poisonous fluid to its original form for reuse purposes.
