PCB Transformer Disposal
PCB (Polychlorinated Biphenyls) are a group of organic chlorine compounds that contain 209 individual sub chemicals (known as congeners). In the past, they were widely used as coolants and lubricants in transformers, capacitors, and other electrical equipment. But, in 1977 PCB manufacturing was stopped because it was found non-biodegradable and carcinogenic in nature. The chemical attributes of PCBs cause them to get concentrated up the food chain. Thus, PCB has been designated toxic by EPA authority and requires effective disposal techniques to counter its harmful effects.
Haz Waste Company have devised a unique disposal method of complete processing of PCB transformers & equipment. The process is in perfect compliance with the stated guidelines of EPA standards. The first step includes rinsing and in the following second step the disposed material is burned down is a blast furnace. Furthermore, the additional hazardous waste is disposed of in designated landfills. The plus points of our disposal technique are that we don’t use any toxic chemical for decontamination and all the solvent used in rinsing process are reprocessed & recycled to reuse in the next batch.
Haz Waste Company is capable of rendering EPA approved disposal services regardless of the PCB levels.
