Biodegradable coolants can be dumped down the drain after use.
Once coolant is used in process it is contaminated with other process contaminants like oil, greases, dissolved metals, solvents, and other potentially undesirable components. These components may not be friendly to the downstream wastewater treatment or, if released to the environment, may be harmful to other living organisms.
