You are legally bound to hand over any PCB oil to an authorized person for collection and treatment. The law requires you to provide a location for storing waste oil until handover. Due to the severe consequences it can cause, the release of PCB oil into the environment and the mixing of PCB waste with other types of waste is prohibited.

By retaining PCB oil you increase the legal risk of being liable for environmental contamination and endangering human health for generations. Why not make your job easier and let us handle your PCB oil?

We receive PCB oil and handle it in accordance with the highest technical standards, applying all necessary measures for control and prevention of leakage, spillage or contamination of other materials. We provide final disposal of PCB oil by incineration in authorized plants.

For materials with transformer oil contamination of up to 1500 ppm, we decontaminate them using a de-chlorination process in a mobile facility, confirmed to be the best available technique (BAT) and best environmental practice (BAP).

Let us handle your PCB oil through our successful and environmentally responsible methods of hazardous waste management.

Hazard of Release or Spillage of Waste Oils into the Environment

 

PCB compounds are persistent organic pollutants, or POPs. The Stockholm Convention ranks them among the top 12 most dangerous prohibited organic compounds (The Dirty Dozen). PCB compounds have all the worst characteristics of hazardous waste, not only on account of their toxicity, but also biohazard properties and their carcinogenic, teratogenetic and mutagenic effects that can lead to problems with the immune system, central and peripheral nervous systems (by indirect ingestion through food). Because of their negative impact on human health and biosystems, they carry a severe risk of pollution for the environment, water, air and land. Inadequate and risky handling and management of such waste is one of the key problems in environmental protection.

The law strictly prohibits the release or spillage of waste oils into the ground, sewage, surface or ground waters, precisely because of their hazardous long-term impact on the environment and human health. The law prohibits the mixing and storage of used PCB oil with other types of waste and regulates the release of waste oil processing residues.

According to the rulebook, devices containing PCB and any premises housing such substances must bear a clearly visible, regulated, damage-resistant sign.
