There's no question that the removal of Lead containing materials is a serious issue. But, until now, the options for doing it haven't always been easy and reliable. That has all changed with the Enviro-Prep System®. It's the stable, long-term solution that is cost-effective, protects the environment and has less risk of liability.
Render Lead in Paint Nonhazardous
Soil Solutions is an authorized distributor of the Enviro-Prep® System products which use a patented treatment chemistry that converts lead to a highly insoluble inorganic compound. The chemical dosage can be tailored to cost-effectively treat any level of lead to less than the RCRA toxicity characteristic of 5.0 mg/L or the Universal Treatment Standard of 0.75 mg/L. The treated material remains stable under all real world and standard laboratory leaching tests.
Easy Field Application
Treatment with Enviro-Prep® System products can easily be integrated into existing blasting procedures. Following an initial review of current lead levels (if available) and any facility-specific issues, an application thickness can be determined. Enviro-Prep® Premium is designed to be applied prior to the blasting procedure. No special protective equipment is needed beyond what is normally required for blasting. Because Enviro-Prep® System products are water-based and pH neutral, it does not create worker contact, wastewater, or material handling problems.
The Enviro-Prep® System has cost-effectively treated lead-impacted sediments in hundreds of applications across the United States.
Cost Savings. Lead-Based Paint treated with Enviro-Prep® System products are nonhazardous and can be managed as a RCRA Subtitle D solid waste. This results in significant cost savings from reduced testing, transportation, and disposal costs. Additional savings are realized by eliminating preparation and tracking of hazardous waste manifests.
Dust and Odor Control. Use of Enviro-Prep® System propducts do not create nuisance dust or odors that are characteristic of other treatment methods.
Environmentally Sound. Treatment with Enviro-Prep® System products eliminate the hazardous waste stream, resulting in an improved public image.
