Veolia working with Rinchem to provide chemical services

Veolia ES Technical Solutions, L.L.C., the hazardous waste division of Veolia Environmental Services, and Rinchem Company, Inc., a chemical management services company, announced that they are forming an alliance to provide chemical lifecycle management services to customers. The alliance will be called Chemical Lifecycle Management (CLM).

Chemical Lifecycle Management will give the marketplace an innovative and unique solution for managing the chemical, gas and waste logistics for a customer from “cradle-to-grave,” or the lifecycle of a chemical. CLM customers will now have a single point-of-contact for chemical/gas management from the purchasing of chemicals through the recycling, reusing or disposing of the waste generated from that chemical. CLM will also work closely with customers to improve supply chain efficiencies, reduce costs, and reduce environmental liabilities.

The CLM service offering includes: chemical procurement management, chemical transportation and delivery, chemical/gas warehousing and inventory management, on-site chemical and waste management, waste collection services, waste transportation and waste recycling/ disposal services. CLM will offer customers a web interface to purchase chemicals, track delivery of chemicals, view detailed material inventory throughout all warehouses and on-site at the production facilities, and track waste activities through the point of recycle or disposal.
