Overview of Building
7-story steel framed building, Height: 30.95 m, Total floor area: 20,710.77 m2
PCB wastes are inspected at acceptance, and after extraction of PCB oil, parts are roughly disassembled.
After primary cleansing, materials are separated to impregnated materials and non-impregnated materials,
and are sent to secondary cleansing. The cleansing solvents for non-impregnated materials are tested if
PCBs are eliminated, and if below standards, they are shipped to be recycled and if not, they are cleansed again.
Dissolution tests are conducted to impregnated materials, and if below standards, they are shipped,
and if not, they are treated in the Vacuum heat furnace.
