Enviro-Vac, a trusted leader for over 45-years delivering highly complex asbestos and lead abatement services for major hydro-electric power plants

Asbestos, Lead, Mercury as well as PCB containing materials used in power plants and electric generating facilities was wide-spread during their construction years ago and unless a detailed destructive survey has been performed, it is difficult to know exactly where these hazardous materials are. Asbestos for example has been used in over 3,000 building products including asbestos cement roof and wall cladding, boilers, fire-spray insulation, heating pipes, tanks, vessels, brakes, electrical wiring, gaskets and more.
