PCB Destruction

Polychlorinated biphenyls, or PCB contaminated materials, are strictly regulated wastes in Canada. Aevitas is well known in the industry as the trusted leader in PCB contaminated waste handling and disposal.

Uncertain about all the various regulations involving PCB’s?  We are the experts and here to help. Although most provinces define PCB Waste as containing 50ppm of PCB or greater, federal regulations prohibit the use of insulating oil containing greater than 2ppm concentration of PCB.  As such, according to federal regulations, a release of liquids containing greater than 2ppm of PCB must be treated and classified as PCB Waste.   

Aevitas offers the most comprehensive PCB destruction program that is in compliance with current municipal, provincial and federal regulations:

  • PCB hazardous waste audit, sampling, testing and weighing
  • Draining, packaging, labeling and transportation of PCB contaminated wastes
  • Proprietary PCB destruction process to decontaminate PCB contaminated materials
  • In-house laboratory testing of PCB destroyed materials to ensure regulatory compliance with municipal, provincial and federal requirements
  • Certificate of PCB destruction and customer indemnification (within 60 days of PCB destruction project)
  • Decommissioning and deregistering PCB storage sites

Although its primary use was to insulate high voltage electrical equipment, PCB’s were widely used for several decades for a variety of purposes as ingredients in many industrial products such as caulking and sealing compounds, cutting oils, inks, paint additives, coolants and lubricants. We provide PCB destruction services for the following materials:

  • PCB impacted caulking, debris, and soils
  • PCB capacitors and ballasts
  • PCB electrical transformers and equipment
  • PCB transformer oil / askarel fluid
