San Leandro, California, August 16, 2023

In a continuous effort to ensure the safety and well-being of our community and the environment, EMSL Analytical, Inc is proud to announce the release of the comprehensive "Hazardous Waste Profile Testing Program for Lead-Containing Construction Materials and Soils."

Lead, a heavy metal with well-documented adverse health and environmental impacts, requires careful management to prevent air, water, soil, and human health contamination. The Hazardous Waste Profile for Lead-Containing Construction Materials is designed to equip Environmental Consultants, Demolition Companies, and individuals with the necessary information to manage the disposal of lead-containing construction materials effectively and minimize their potential adverse environmental effects.

Key Highlights of the Hazardous Waste Profile:
  • Identification and Classification: The profile offers detailed information on identifying various lead levels in construction materials commonly encountered in industrial, commercial, and residential settings. It delves into classifying these materials as hazardous waste under relevant regulatory frameworks.
  • Community Engagement: Recognizing the significance of community involvement, the profile emphasizes the importance of transparent communication with workers and relevant stakeholders about lead-containing materials and their proper management.
  • Best Practices: Drawing on industry expertise and regulatory guidelines, the profile offers best practices for risk assessment, waste minimization, and pollution prevention to help organizations incorporate responsible lead management into their operations.
