PCB Transformers and Capacitors

SGS provides polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB) transformers management  to help you recycle or dispose of your electrical transformers and capacitors. For more information about how your waste can be re-used, call our accredited team today.

Electrical transformers and capacitors are a major source of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). PCBs are persistent organic pollutants, substances that accumulate in the environment. Once released, PCBs can pose a threat for decades, causing human health and environmental problems.

Our accredited laboratories can assist you with waste management services to reclassify and re-use your industrial waste. From your disassembled transformers and capacitors we are able to re-use up to 95 percent of the contents as raw materials.

Our teams are licensed handlers of PCB transformers and capacitors. We collect your electrical waste and can dismantle oversized equipment on site, using our own hoisting and dismantling equipment. Our transportation is equipped with leak-proof containers for removal to our accredited laboratories for temporary storage, treatment and safe and legal disposal of dangerous waste.

All our work is performed in accordance with national and international regulations. You can be confident that your procedures will comply with the legislation valid for your industry sector. Our certificates are proof that your waste has been processed in the appropriate manner.

Call our teams today for clean and environmentally safe disposal of your transformers and capactors.
