Pressing Solutions Ltd

Aerosol Recycling Equipment

Aerosol Recycling Equipment is our main business, and our ‘Aerosol Piercing & Filtration Units’ enable users to recycle their aerosol cans worldwide.

Recycling aerosols at the point of arising is the best method of aerosol pre-treatment. The aerosol piercing & filtration units will convert hazardous waste into non-hazardous waste (check MSDS sheets for product details) with an immediate saving in disposal costs and enhances the ISO 14001 status of the user.

Waste Compliance Regulations now class the action of piercing and filtration of aerosols using British standard carbon filters as a Permitted Action providing the equipment used is designed specifically for that purpose.

APRIL 2011 – T15 Exemption for up to 3000 aerosols being treated on each site should be completed.

Now also adopted by SEPA in a Position Statement June 2019


The PRESSING SOLUTIONS Aerosol Piercing Unit was awarded a Green Apple Award for Good Environmental Practice Technology presented at the House of Commons on 4 th November 2004 by the Trade and Industry Minister, Patricia Hewitt. This was also featured on Midlands Today (11th February 2005) by David Gregory.

Recycling aerosols releases around 25,000 tonnes of steel and 4,500 tonnes of aluminium into the metal recycling stream.

We have over 20 years of experience in the recycling industry and would be pleased to discuss any recycling issues you may have. We also offer can crushers to further reduce the volume of your aerosols and cans.
