Toxic Substances Control Act Management

Toxic Substance Control Act (TSCA) Consulting Services from Ransom Consulting.

Specialized services focused on Polychlorinated Biphenyls.

Ransom Consulting provides unparalleled expertise with respect to detecting and measuring the presence and release of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) from liquids such as dielectric and heat exchange fluids and some older building materials such as caulking, paint and sound damping insulation.

Ransom’s expertise includes preparation of site characterization and cleanup plans as required by the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) 40 CFR §761.61(a) and §761.61©. Identifying and controlling harmful chemicals that cause unreasonable risks to human health or the environment is important work that Ransom takes very seriously.

As a result, our TSCA service team is the preferred provider of a major New England/New York electrical utility company for the characterization, reporting and remediation of PCB releases to both outdoor and indoor environments.

Dependable TSCA expertise, when you need it most.

Ransom also provides TSCA expertise to numerous public and private entities throughout New England and much of the Northeastern United States. Clients include local municipalities and school districts, as well as colleges and universities, private developers and their legal teams. These services are invaluable to clients particularly during proposed building renovation and rehabilitation.

PCB management solutions for the electric utility industry – and beyond.

Ransom’s clients rely on our experienced team of scientists and engineers to deliver timely and effective solutions for all of their environmental issues – including the concerns and realities of those affected by the TSCA.

Our excellent reputation and long standing working relationships with many federal and state regulators ensure the development of compliant solutions based on the current regulatory structure.
