The “Clean and Green” Seminar

June 13 and 14, 2017
Santa Fe Springs, California

Sign up for this Educational Training with industry experts and get on your way to become VOC compliant!

Hosted by KYZEN and CJI Process Systems.


Join us for an in-depth overview of the latest changes in government regulations that are currently affecting chemistry used in California manufacturing facilities.  We will be offering 2 days of training, with several technical sessions and hands-on testing throughout the day!  Training is FREE, but space is limited so sign up today!


Recent U.S. Government / EPA Changes Concerning Approval For Solvents Used in Manufacturing Operations.  With the ever tightening rules and regulations imposed on solvent cleaning by Federal, State, and other regional governing bodies, today’s solvents must be safe, efficient, effective, environmentally compliant, and provide the required performance level to meet the end user’s needs. Environmental / Health / Safety concerns are paramount when selecting a solvent to meet the cleaning application! This session will provide a current comprehensive look at:

  • Current EPA / OSHA / NESHAP solvent regulations review
  • Emerging NEW solvents – Safety and Performance
  • Market trends for solvent cleaning
  • and more

Emergence & Growth of Modified Alcohol Solvents in the Manufacturing Industry, Applications and Operational Procedures.  Move toward organic solvent, closed-systems has become an emerging trend in the cleaning technologies and
manufacturing industry. And we can understand why, take the Vacuum Degreasing process for example: the entire cleaning operation is conducted under a vacuum to enable continuous distillation/purification of the solvent. The heated liquid solvent is introduced to the cleaning chamber from 1 to 3 reservoirs, allowing for wash, rinse, and RP applications. This session will cover the many benefits of this process, including

A Step by Step Guide to help Prevent Corrosion at your Manufacturing Facility.  If you are fighting corrosion on your manufacturing facility, you are not alone.  In this
educational and interactive session, we will provide an in-depth overview of the problem as well as an analysis of the required factors contributing to corrosion.  You will also learn about the types of corrosion associated with the metal industry and the leading causes, as well as ways to minimize them.

Facility Tour & Chemistry Demo. Bring your soiled parts to our event and you will be able to participate in our Live Demo.
