A few years ago, I attended a recycling workshop with information given that
substitutes made with natural products,ie as  Hemo-de contains, are very
to recycle. This seemed to occur because the concentrations and percentages
of the
natural ingredients varied and were not stable as in the xylenes.  What is the
latest information concerning this?  Has the technology refined enough to
compensate for this?   sharon osborn wrote:
