EBC Remediation Program: Managing PCB Impacted Building Materials

Over the past several years, the occurrence of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in building materials has been a growing concern for public and private property owners in New England.  The approaches used for the management of these materials, however, have been inconsistently applied throughout the industry. This EBC program will focus on issues of PCB-impacted building materials, pertinent regulations, types of waste, assessment techniques, risk characterization, remediation/abatement methods, disposal options, and deed restrictions for remaining impacts. The program will feature the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Region I TSCA PCB Coordinator, Kim Tisa, who will provide a review of regulatory developments.  In addition presentations will include public/private property owners and an environmental attorney who will share their experiences. This seminar will also focus on the recent reinterpretation of Bulk Product Waste in the TSCA regulations.
Continuing Education Certificates are awarded by the EBC for this program (3.5 training contact hours). Please select this option during registration if you wish to receive a certificate.
