None of the posts I have been seeing seem to recognize that most
chromatography solvent is wasted during while the HPLC is idle.  

A few years ago, after a RCRA audit at a pharmaceutical lab, I helped the
lab managers purchase a device that recycles the solvent during idle mode.
What we were interested in was the mandatory requirement to reduce hazardous
waste generation, but we also enjoyed greatly reduced solvent costs. 

Stay healthy,
