Fielding has been recycling chemicals for over 55 years, a remarkable fact predating any common knowledge of the term. This highlights our unwavering belief that extracting all value from waste streams prior to their disposal or destruction is imperative to our sustainability.
Our commitment to the environment dictates that we leave this Planet a better place for the generations to come. Some of the ways we contribute to the improvement of the environment include:
- As members of the Ontario Environmental Leaders Program Fielding is successfully delivering on commitments to reduce the emissions and residues from our operations.
- Our products are recycled offsetting the demand for non-renewable resources.
- We have an active Green Procurement Program that ensures we make Sustainable choices for the inputs and supplies that we consume.
- We are one of the first participating businesses to participate in the Credit Valley Conservation Authority Corporate Greening Program which has seen us naturalize our corporate grounds with planting of native species.
- Our active Sustainability Committee is constantly educating our staff and bringing new ideas forward so we can all minimize our footprint at work and at home.
Profit is often the element of Triple Bottom Line that gets overlooked in discussions about Sustainability. We believe profit is essential to ensure that organizations delivering the solutions that make Sustainability possible survive and prosper.
At Fielding we are proud to see all of our efforts toward improving Sustainability contributing toward cost savings and to new revenue generation.
All of our products are derived from waste streams. The value that we recover from these materials is the key input to our profits and significant contributor to our customers profits.
In addition, all of our efforts to reduce our emissions, to reduce our consumption of consumables and raw materials and our ongoing quest to expand the list of materials that we repurpose through our innovative techniques contribute to profitability.
Fielding has been perfecting the art of solvent recycling since 1955. We employ a unique combination of separation technologies and expertise to recycle the maximum volume possible from the waste chemicals we receive. At Fielding, we can clean, dry, separate and custom blend thousands of different waste solvent and glycol combinations. Every waste stream is unique and requires a unique solution to maximize yields and save our customers money.
Some of the technologies we have mastered include
- Molecular sieve separation
- Membrane separation
Our unique combination of recycling technologies not only allow us to formulate customized solutions for waste, but allow us to create unique products that meet our customers exact specifications.
IN 1955 THE MCGREGOR COMMITMENT BEGAN…
This was the year Jack McGregor made a commitment to the solvent reclamation industry. The first program was with the Ford Motor Company. Fielding provided a system of recovering solvents being used in Ford’s paint process. Drums of spent solvents from the Oakville plant were reprocessed in a custom designed distillation system at Fielding. The recovered solvents were then returned to Ford for reuse. This early commitment to environmental responsibility grew to include paint manufacturers such as Pittsburgh Paint, Benjamin Moore and Lowe Brothers. Soon after this, Fielding began repurposing spent refrigerants for companies like DuPont.
This success led to rapid growth in a wide variety of industries and with companies large and small. Fielding invested in sophisticated analytical capabilities and manufacturing equipment and went on to create Canada’s earliest “green” product line including solvents and refrigerants.
The success and diversity of Fielding’s products and services grew as customers came to trust Fielding’s stringent quality control and depend on the cost benefits for their businesses.
The key to Fielding’s longevity has been the ability to recognize and adapt to changing needs and opportunities.
