Sustainability Problem and Proposed Solution: 

Chemistry laboratories generally consume large quantities of acetone, and those at UC Santa Cruz are no exception. Using commercially available, robust, and efficient acetone recycling systems, this acetone could be efficiently recovered as relatively pure solvent from the moderately contaminated waste solutions.
