Off-Spec Chemical Management
Merichem® can help companies find an end-use for chemical streams that fail to meet their own production specifications. We have developed a wide range of applications, providing us the ability to match these off-spec chemicals or surplus to end user needs without compromising performance.
How Beneficial Reuse Benefits You
When Merichem® matches an off-spec chemical product to an end user, these products are excluded from hazardous waste compliance requirements, eliminating the need for record keeping and costly protocols. It promotes recycling while helping you advance your own sustainability initiatives. We can provide safe storage, transportation, and recycling of off-spec chemical products.

Maintaining Chemical Quality Standards
Merichem® is an ongoing member of the American Chemical Council. As such, we strictly adhere to the Responsible Care® program, along with the initiatives established by the American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturer (AFPM). We analyze chemical composition on deliveries, check tanks monthly to further minimize contamination risks, and analyze off-spec chemicals in our own on-site labs regularly.
RideTight® Fluid-Sealing Management
To ensure safety and consistency, Merichem® has implemented VSP Technologies’ RideTight® Fluid-Sealing Management Program for our rail cars. These processes designate the appropriate type and size gasket for all rail cars, verifying proper material and torque for all manway gaskets. Also allowing for operator training, it helps ensure that all manufacturing and application specifications are met.
