ABSTRACT

Facility decommissioning projects often include an environmental component that involves the identification of chemicals and hazardous building materials used at the site, decontamination or abatement of those materials, and proper disposal. PCBs are one chemical hazard that may need to be addressed during the dismantling of older industrial facilities. The continued use and handling of PCB-containing materials are highly regulated, and their disposal can be very expensive. However, decontamination methods may be performed to allow PCB-contaminated equipment to be reused or scrapped, thereby minimizing waste volumes and reducing disposal costs. This paper summarizes decontamination approaches that may be used to achieve TSCA compliance during the decommissioning process.
