It is widely known that the combustion of fossil fuels produces a significant amount of toxic emissions, but another remnant of this combustion is the high heat waste that is left behind. These remnants have incredibly high temperatures and cannot be handled, stored, or transported like regular waste. This type of waste includes materials such as ash, slag, and even particulates which are removed from flue gas. These wastes were categorized by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as special wastes, and have since been excluded from the list of hazardous waste. However, they still need to be handled with extreme care and caution.
High heat waste produced by different industries varies depending on the industry-specific procedures. However, here are a few major types of high heat waste:
High-temperature waste needs to be handled with extreme caution, as it can cause incompatible or poorly manufactured containers and storage packages to melt, sometimes even emitting toxic fumes as a result. Therefore, it is vital to choose your high heat waste packaging solution wisely.
PacTec has engineered a cost-effective and reliable solution to help you collect and store high heat waste in a secure manner. The TransPac can withstand wastes such as high-temperature ash, tar, or any other waste that has been produced as a result of combustion. Using a combination of highly durable and heat-resistant materials, we have created an innovative flexible high heat waste containment solution for industrial waste management. This packaging has been designed to help streamline the process of collecting, storing, transporting, and disposing of high-temperature wastes. If you have a specific set of requirements for the design specifications, size, and material configurations, PacTec can custom engineer high heat waste containers for you at a competitive price.
