Waste Management

SCT provides environmental consulting services that include customized solutions to compliance issues in a timely and cost-effective manner, applying proven risk management principles to the goal of solving environmental issues. SCT’s uniquely qualified staff brings experience, environmental technical competence, and strategic partnerships to successfully execute projects to mitigate liability for our clients.

To manage refractory disposal, SCT partners with top tier hazardous waste vendors and utilizes approved Treatment, Storage, and Disposal Facilities (TSDF) to assure compliance with stringent federal, state, and client specific requirements. SCT’s cradle-to-grave process mitigates liability for the client.

Hazardous waste is properly segregated and managed accordingly under the federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), and state specific requirements such as the California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC). Unregulated material, such as Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material (NORM), is disposed of only at facilities permitted to receive and dispose of the material. RCRA hazardous waste landfills are designed to be highly protective disposal facilities, however, the special characteristics of radioactive materials are not addressed by RCRA regulations. The permits for such facilities have additional conditions to limit the radioactivity of waste that can be accepted in order to ensure adequate public protection, to ensure appropriate monitoring, to protect ground water, and to provide for worker protection. By thoroughly examining these facilities, and only using facilities permitted to managed both the specific hazardous and NORM wastes, SCT mitigates liability and helps the client avoid becoming a Potentially Responsible Party (PRP) under the Superfund law (officially the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act, (CERCLA)).

SCT offers comprehensive refractory management services that help mitigate liability for the client:

  • Optimized costs by identifying transport/disposal vendors and leveraging strategic partnerships
  • Examining Treatment, Storage, and Disposal Facilities to mitigate liability
