Centec – the name derived from “Center for Environmental Technology” has for the last 20 years sought to deliver sustainable processing by recovering and recycling wherever possible. We use our flexible resources and substantial experience to deliver valuable materials back to our customers. We are experts in solvent recovery. We have also demonstrated viable product recovery from waste streams, which we feel is more innovative. We recover products worth million of pounds for clients, which would otherwise be lost. We would welcome the opportunity to see how much money we could save for your business!
We seek to develop relationships with larger companies, enabling them to focus on core activities by assisting them with subsidiary problems – process development / optimisation, new product development, waste minimisation, or improving raw material and energy utilisation.
We also offer full toll / custom manufacturing services. We have a small portfolio of our own products which are linked to our core expertise (our products)
Since the inception of Centec in 1991, we have worked with many satisfied customers from small one off jobs to many years of exclusive manufacture on large scale for multinational partners. Such customers include - Shell, Nalco - Exxon, GSK, GB Oils, Du Pont, ICI
