Survey of Currently Available Non-Incineration PCB Destruction Technologies
This publication 'Survey of Currently Available Non-Incineration PCB Destruction Technologies is intended to serve as a guide to available PCB destruction technologies other than incineration. The publication responds to requests for information on, and to continuing interest in alternatives to incineration. The Survey identifies more than 20 vendors who represent that they can treat and destroy PCB oils, transformers, or capacitors, using chemical or physical processes. UNEP does not, of course, endorse, approve, or certify vendors or processes. The Survey’s purpose is simply to further respond to the UNEP Governing Council’s request that UNEP develop and publish information to assist countries in ensuring the environmentally sound management of PCBs. The Survey thus provides PCB holders with information on available alternatives to incineration that they may wish to pursue further.
