If the nitroethane containing products I've come across are anything to go by, the glycol ether compound(methoxy-2-propanol or phenoxyethanol usually) is only present in minute concentration, 2-5%.

It seems like any potential separation process will be either tedious or complicated. I've only had a bit of experience with nitro compounds but I'd suspect both hydrogenation/reduction to amino, and henry reaction would tolerate the impurity.

Possibly isn't worth the effort unless it's proven necessary for whatever the intended use.
