Why Use ECO Funnel®?


Solve the "Open Waste Container Problem" with ECO Funnel®


Although it is common practice for chemists and lab workers to leave open funnels on waste containers, it is out of compliance with EPA, OSHA, and certain local Fire Code regulations and hazardous. This applies even when the waste container is under a fume hood.


ECO Funnel® is designed to address these concerns and help laboratories stay compliant with local health and safety codes.


ECO Funnel is the ultimate lab safety product for collection of hazardous liquid waste. It’s unique, patented design safely stops toxic waste container emissions by 99.9%. The waste container is no longer open, and correct, consistent use aids in lab fire prevention.




Purpose, Design & Benefits


The Safety ECO Funnel® provides important benefits:

  • Solves the "open waste container" problem
  • An open waste container sitting under a fume hood allows chemicals to evaporate at a rate of 30-60 mL per day and does not comply with OSHA and EPA standards.
  • ECO Funnel® screws securely onto a variety of bottles.
  • Its latching lid prevents toxic emissions and promotes a healthier laboratory environment.


Prevents 99.9% of emissions of volatile waste solvents, acids, and bases in the laboratory
The gasket within the latching lid prevents nearly all chemical emissions when the funnel is not in use.


Maintains a low average daily operating cost - ECO Funnel® is a cost-effective solution to waste management problems in laboratories, hospitals, and other facilities regularly working with hazardous chemical waste. Many ECO Funnels are used for several years. Your own usage may vary depending on usage.


Meets safety regulations
Unique, patented design includes a latching lid and gasket that meets most local, state and federal safety regulations and requirements.


May be used again and again
ECO Funnel® resists nearly all corrosive chemicals and can be used safely for several years.


Is considered a state of the art product
Environmental health and safety officers and industry professionals consider ECO Funnel® as a highly effective tool for chemical waste management.


Is widely used across diverse industry fields
Pharmaceutical, Biotech, Academic and Government laboratories all use ECO Funnel® as part of their safety protocol.


Extends the life of your ductless fume hoods
Typically a ductless fume hood has no ventilation to the outside and extra fumes unnecessarily overwhelm its charcoal filters.


Strong enough to resist damage
Our ECO Funnel® survived a University lab explosion completely intact and was documented in the photo to the right by a lab worker. Though the lab was mostly destroyed, the lid of the funnel remained closed, containing the volatile solvents inside and preventing a possible fire.ECO Funnel® is a powerful tool for maintaining safety in the workplace.


Safety Regulations


The following Federal Regulations (EPA / OSHA) can be met through regular use of ECO Funnel® systems and secondary containment:

  • 29 CFR 1910.1450: “Avoidance of routine exposure: develop and encourage safe habits; avoid unnecessary exposure to chemicals by any route.”
  • 29 CFR 1910.1450: “Indiscriminate disposal by pouring waste chemicals down the drain or adding them to mixed refuse for landfill burial is unacceptable. Hoods should not be used as a means of disposal for volatile chemicals.”
  • 40 CFR 264.173: “A container holding hazardous waste must always be closed during storage except with it is necessary to add or remove waste.”
  • 40 CFR 264.175:“The containment system must have sufficient capacity to contain 10% of the volume of containers or the volume of the largest container, whichever is greater...”
  • 29 CFR 1910.1450: “Stockrooms/Storerooms: ...chemicals which are highly toxic or other chemicals whose containers have been opened should be in unbreakable secondary containers...

Clean Water


Chemists use volatile solvents such as acetone or isopropyl alcohol to wash their glassware in the sink. The Safety ECO Funnel® facilitates the collection of waste solvent, makes sink solvent disposals easier and safer, reduces the chance of spillage and contamination, and helps comply with waste solvent regulations.

Clean Lab


Safety Officers find that an entire lab can benefit from the Safety ECO Funnel®. A simple and cost-effective way to control emissions and reduce the fire hazard, it minimizes the exposure of lab personnel to toxic fumes, reduces odor around the lab, protects users from odorless inhalants such as dichloromethane, and prevents the chance of cross contamination during lab procedures.





ECO Funnels™ can be equipped with one or more HPLC fittings. Located on the side of the funnel body, HPLC fittings allow the operator to connect the HPLC waste line directly to the funnel to facilitate waste collection. Make your request for HPLC adapters when ordering your ECO Funnels™ andwe will custom fit them to your specifications. You can also call us at +603-4142 1520 for more information on ordering ECO Funnels™ with HPLC.

Spill Kit Management


Spill Prevention and Secondary Containment



Work Stations


2,4,6 and 8 drum workstations catch incidental spills. The low profile optimises space and helps improve safety and efficiency. Use independently or link together to create your own work space. Enpac's workstations are the easiest to load with low profile deign and optional ramp. One-piece construction optimises space for increased durability, safety and efficiency. With ample sump capacity in each Workstation, this secondary containment product is perfect for a dispensing station or work centre. Each Workstation is designed for stand-alone use or combines with other Workstations for a customised work area. Our rolled-edge design helps resist cracking and warpage. * Tough polyethylene construction, cannot rust or corrode * Low profile workstations actually become part of your factory floor, optimising space for increased safety and efficiency * Large sump capacity catches incidental spills * Multi-Purpose Work Ramp hooks onto any workstation for easy loading * Heavy-duty
