Equipment Decontamination

Equipment Decontamination

Veolia provides equipment decontamination services for any size job, from one piece of equipment to a complete facility. Our team of specialists determines the technique most suitable for the type of contamination and completes the job as quickly as possible. Depending on the situation, the techniques may rely primarily on manual labor or may require sophisticated equipment with specialized training. We assure compliance with all local, state and federal regulations in our processes and in delivering thorough decontamination.

CUSTOMIZED SERVICES

Whether you are decontaminating in anticipation of a real estate transaction or the decontamination is mandated through a RCRA closure of a hazardous waste storage area, our services are customized to your particular needs. We provide a decontamination solution that meets whatever requirements the situation demands and complies with all applicable regulations. We use the proper equipment and apply the correct techniques to complete the decontamination process expeditiously. Final sampling is provided.

REGULATORY REQUIREMENTS

Closing hazardous waste storage areas in particular may be subject to regulation under the federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). Other regulations, such as the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) or the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA), may apply.
