Why Activated Carbon Makes Sense for PCB Remediation

Feb 12, 2010

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.
