Waste management is a key component of healthy, happy communities – and when done well, it also helps keep industrial operations running efficiently.Read More
Across the globe, manufacturing centers, power plants, factories, and other facilities are all generating industrial waste. But what is industrial waste, and more importantly, how do all of these places transport it after its generated?Read More
Millions of American industrial facilities produce both non-hazardous and hazardous waste every year. Most experts estimate that the United States alone creates 7.6 billion tons of industrial solid waste annually – and all of that waste needs to be dealt with.Read More
Spill berms… barriers… bunds… dikes… How are you supposed to sort through it all and determine the best solution for containing potential spills in your workplace? While it can be confusing weeding through the various options, we’ve successfully helped people just like you find the right solution at the best price. This article will help you evaluate your options and explore the various types of containment products and how they each function to contain spills.Read More
Depending on the industry you are in, you may have encountered the term FIBC bags at some point. You might even be wondering “what does FIBC stand for?” and “why would I want to use an FIBC?” Whether you are the CEO of a manufacturing plant, a transportation specialist or a field worker, it’s important to learn as much as you can about FIBC bags and their importance to operational efficiency and safety.Read More
Whether you’re a power plant, agricultural company, construction site, or mining operation, you’ve probably needed to perform a bulk bag calculation to determine what size bag would be necessary for the volume of waste or product you need to contain.Read More
The basic FIBC safe handling guidelines apply to any bulk bag. The rules here include selecting the right type of jumbo sack, sticking with the manufacturer's recommendations, and making sure your bag is free of damage. Adhere to these regulations, and you are already halfway there.Read More
As a more affordable and easier-to-use alternative to rigid containers, flexible intermediate bulk containers (commonly known as FIBCs or bulk bags), are growing in popularity and availability. But knowing how to properly handle, store and transport these flexible bulk container bags to ensure everyone's safety is very important in preventing costly, dangerous, or catastrophic spills or accidents.Read More
It is no secret that there have been rapid increases in recent months of propylene resins, mainly due to increases in demand and challenges with supply. Plant operations have slowed significantly due to the COVID-19 pandemic, raw materials have been reallocated to produce PPE, and recent weather events have further complicated matters.Read More
Let’s face it, sometimes regulations seem to get in the way of us just getting a job done, am I right? While spill containment may feel like one of those unnecessary burdens when setting up equipment or starting work, there are many good reasons to view it as a critical element. For our purposes, spill containment will encompass any temporary spill berm or spill tray designed to catch any potential spill or release of chemicals, oils, sewage, or other harmful liquid to prevent them from reaching the soil or groundwater.Read More
Since PacTec began over 30 years ago, significant innovations in flexible waste packaging have occurred, creating a large shift in the way waste generators safely transport and dispose of problematic waste streams. You’re no longer restricted to using bulky, heavy, expensive, and difficult-to-manage rigid containers. While rigid containers may have their place in certain applications, the mindset has shifted towards the safety and reliability of flexible waste packaging for most industrial and nuclear waste types.
Let’s put to rest some common misconceptions about flexible waste packaging.Read More
Biological and organic waste disposal is exponentially more important during a pandemic – or when preventing the next one. We’ve seen wildlife and domesticated animals spread pathogens that are harmful to humans, and we’ll continue to see that unless we implement the right waste disposal procedures now.
