Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCB) Decontamination

The EPA regulates PCBs and all activities connected to them under regulation 40 CFR 761, Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs) Manufacturing, Processing, Distribution in Commerce, and Use Prohibitions. Subpart D of this regulation (761.79 Decontamination Standards and Procedures), mentions how coatings containing PCBs are to be removed. The final disposition of the pipe once decontaminated, will determine what NACE standard the pipe will need to be cleaned to. Pipe being sold back into commerce requires that it be cleaned to a NACE Visual Standard No. 2, Near-White Blast Cleaned Surface Finish. If the final disposition of the pipe is going to be smelted (scrap metal), the EPA requires the pipe surface to be cleaned to a NACE Visual Standard No. 3, Commercial Blast Cleaned Surface Finish. The Pipe Yard has been inspected by a NACE Inspector and has been recognized to have the ability to clean pipe to a NACE No. 2 Visual Standard. The Pipe Yard Pipeline can handle PCB’s that are present in the inside diameter or outside diameter.
