GLRPPR Sector Resource: Survey of Currently Available Non-Incineration PCB Destruction Technologies

Title:
Survey of Currently Available Non-Incineration PCB Destruction Technologies

Abstract:
This United Nations Environment Programme publication is intended to serve as a guide to available PCB destruction technologies other than incineration. PCBs are chemical substances which are persistent, bioaccumulate, and pose a risk of causing adverse effects to human health and the environment. This survey identifies more than 20 vendors who claim 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; this survey merely provides PCB holders with information on available alternatives to incineration that they may wish to pursue further. (PDF Format; Length: 70 pages)
