Additional Information:

Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs) are a group of man-made organic chemicals that belong to a broad family known as chlorinated hydrocarbons. PCBs were domestically manufactured from 1929 until manufacturing was banned in 1979. Due to their non-flammability, chemical stability, high boiling point, and electrical insulating properties, PCBs were used in hundreds of industrial and commercial applications including:

  • Electrical, heat transfer, and hydraulic equipment
  • Plasticizers in paints, plastics, and rubber products
  • Pigments, dyes, and carbonless copy paper

The USEPA Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) provides federal PCB remediation policy that must be coordinated with New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection's (NJDEP) Site Remediation Program (SRP) during PCB remediation projects. PCB remediations may involve one or more contaminated media and addressing them during remedial investigations is regularly undertaken by the Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP).

This NEW class is designed to provide LSRPs, non-LSRPs, and those conducting remediation with information that will allow them to better understand the technical and scientific aspects of these compounds, the associated regulatory framework, and current remediation technologies. In addition, two case studies are included to present the complexities of remediation over multi-media scenarios.
