Tox Free’s facilities are licensed to treat a broad range of hazardous waste using High Temperature Incineration, Thermal Desorption, Physiochemical Treatment, Recycling and Fixation. Our facilities are also licensed to store Dangerous Goods.
Our experienced waste management technicians can provide waste inventories, undertake identification, labelling and repackaging of waste materials and organise transport using one of our numerous Controlled Waste licensed vehicles. Because Tox Free manages the treatment and disposal of hazardous waste all services are provided “In House’ which enables Tox Free to offer the most competitive and efficient service in the market.
Intractable wastes such as Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs) and Organochlorine Pesticides (OCPs) are hazardous chemicals that persist in the environment and have been banned from use within Australia. Tox Free is a leader in the management of these waste streams using its patented Thermal Desorption technology.
Thermal destruction of waste combines high temperature; long residence time and high turbulence together with an efficient gas management system to ensure waste materials are efficiently destroyed and rendered safe. Tox Free issues 'Certificates of Destruction' for waste materials destroyed by thermal destruction. This removes any further liability for the waste and provides our clients with peace of mind knowing their waste is not able to adversely impact on the environment in the future.
No matter what the waste material Tox Free will manage it.
