ITU AbsorbTech Wins Business Friend of the Environment Award

ITU AbsorbTech has been named a winner of the Business Friend of the Environment Award by Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce (WMC).
“We are honored to be among the 9 businesses to receive the 2019 Business Friend of the Environment Award,” says Jim Leef, president at ITU AbsorbTech.
This year’s award winners represent companies that have made significant improvements in the areas of sustainability, environmental stewardship and environmental innovation.
ITU AbsorbTech was recognized for its innovative solvent recovery system for printer towels. This system recovers inks and solvents for reuse rather than emissions into air, water, or waste.
“We’ve been laundering textiles for reuse for more than 100 years and have always looked for ways to use less water and energy,” says Leef. “It is also our history to recover as much as possible from the towels we clean so those process fluids can be put to another use.”
ITU AbsorbTech’s patented solvent recovery system achieves these important objectives:
- Recovers solvents for reuse, not emissions into air, water or waste
- Significantly reduces the facilities’ air emissions
- Reduces customer liability through reduction/elimination of solvent bearing waste
Last year, ITU AbsorbTech customers prevented an average of 540 gallons of solvent from polluting land, air and waterways with use of Ultra™ Printer Towels. That’s enough solvent to fill 13 bathtubs per customer, per year.
“It is gratifying to be recognized for the work we do for the printing and graphics industry.”

CDM Tool has been using ITU for a long time. They have dedicated drivers. Bob our driver knows our company so well, he is able to tell based on our supply's that are used how business is going. He then adjusts so we don't overpay. The best part is that they don't create more work for me. We have never had an issue with lost uniforms.read more
