  • TVA Preparing EIS on Coal Ash Storage at Memphis Site

    TVA wants public comments and is preparing an Environmental Impact Statement to evaluate the potential environmental effects of several options at Allen. An estimated almost 3 million cubic yards of coal ash and other coal combustion residuals remain in the ash impoundments at the site.

  • Explo Systems Employees Sentenced in Conspiracy Case

    "Through their reckless mismanagement of waste explosives, the defendants put the safety of an entire town at risk," said Susan Bodine, assistant administrator of the EPA Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance. "Today's sentencing should send a clear message that EPA and our law enforcement partners will hold corporate officials responsible for violating laws designed to protect our communities and the environment."

    Landfills and waste are two of the greatest threats to the health of the environment, and effective screening solutions can greatly reduce your company's contribution to the problem.

  • Four Ways Businesses Are Creatively Recycling Waste

    Wasteboards creates skateboards in Amsterdam with a very eco-friendly twist. Research suggests there are 20,000 plastic bottles bought every second, giving Wasteboards an idea to collect plastic bottle tops to create the deck of the skateboard.

    Many businesses are trying to play their part in helping the environment. This proves that the ability to be creative and think outside the box can truly have admirable benefits that help both people and the planet — could you become more ethically focused?

  • Mock-Up Project Lowers Risk for SRS Workers

    "The mock-ups used for the liquid waste operations and SWPF tie-in project are an ideal way to test the execution of this important but hazardous scope," DOE-Savannah River Assistant Manager for Waste Disposition Jim Folk said. "Ultimately, it helps to determine the tools and techniques that will be needed to perform the tie-ins while reducing exposure to the workers."

  • Save Our Seas Act of 2018 Signed into Law

  • Mercury Control with Regenerative Activated Coke Technology

    The multi-pollutant control ReACT™ technology is a completely dry scrubbing system based on adsorption of SO2, SO3, and Hg and reduction of NOx to N2 on activated coke in a moving bed, with regeneration of the coke for return to the adsorber, and production of saleable byproduct, such as sulfuric acid, from desorbed sulfur rich gases.

  • Why Activated Carbon Makes Sense for PCB Remediation

    For about 50 years, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) were commonly used in industrial materials including, caulking, cutting oils, inks, paints and as dielectric fluids in electrical equipment such as transformers and capacitors. Concerns over health effects led to a North American ban of manufacturing PCBs in 1977. By the mid-1980s, an initiative was started to clean up contaminated areas and to phase out PCB-containing equipment and products that were still in use. This cleanup effort continues today.

  • Adventus Field Profile

    Groundwater at an industrial site in Texas is impacted with Chlorinated Volatile Organic Carbon’s (CVOCs), primarily PCE and TCE, from historical waste disposal. The topography at the site slopes steeply towards a small channel where the groundwater discharges. Depth to groundwater ranges from approximately 20 ft bgs at the source area to 1 ft bgs close to the channel.
