INDUSTRIAL WASTE MANAGEMENT
ALAM HIJAU INTEGRASI (M) SDN. BHD. understands the practical
issues of industrial and hazardous waste management.
We can assist with:
- Waste Minimization
- Waste Characterization and Handling
- Waste/Chemical Segregation
- Disposal/Recycling Options
- Site Decommissioning
- On-Site Waste Clean-Up
PACKAGING BY ALAM HJAU
Proper packaging is vital for the safe transportation and handling
of hazardous waste. The waste producer shall be responsible for
the correct packaging, labeling, transportation and specification
of the waste as stated in the Environmental Quality (Scheduled
Wastes) Regulations 1989.
PACKAGING AND TYPES OF WASTE
The following rules of thumb apply when selecting the appropriate
* Liquid organic/inorganic waste:-
Bunghole drum (steel/plastic) or plastic pallet tank with stopper.
* Solid waste and empty contaminated container:-
Open top drums (steel/plastic) with covers and clamp.
* Dry solid waste and contaminated rags:-
One-tonne PP bags.
* Pharmaceutical and laboratory waste:-
Open top drums (steel or plastic) with cover and clamp.
All wastes shall be classified in accordance with the following:
1. First Schedule, Environmental Quality (Scheduled Wastes) Regulations
1989 of the Environmental Quality Act 1974 (Scheduled Waste Code).
2. KA Waste Classification Code
The rule of thumb in the selection of packing containers is as
|Liquid Organic Waste/Flammable liquid
||Metal Drum with bunghole
|Liquid Inorganic waste/Corrosive liquid
||Plastic drum with bunghole
|Solid waste (organic or inorganic)
||Metal or plastic drum with clamped lid, skid bin or PP bag
|Dry Solid waste and contaminated rags
||One ton PP bags
|Pharmaceutical and laboratory waste
||Open top drum (steel/plastic) with cover and clamp
ASBESTOS SURVEY, ASSESSMENT & REMOVAL
material (ACM) refers to any non-friable material which contains
1% or greater asbestos, or any friable material which contains
0.1% or greater asbestos. Asbestos dust refers to particles of
asbestos or settled particles of asbestos which may become airborne
in the working environment. Asbestos fiber refers to a particle
of asbestos greater than 5 micrometers in length, with a minimum
length to diameter ratio of 3 to 1.
Asbestos fibers that are released from asbestos-containing material
into the airspace during construction or abatement activities
can remain airborne for prolonged periods of time. The inhalation
of asbestos fibers can eventually lead to three specific diseases:
asbestosis (a fibrous scarring of the lungs), lung cancer, and
mesothelioma (a cancer of the lining of the chest or abdominal
cavity. The symptoms of the above diseases may appear 20 years
or more after exposure; however, high levels of exposure can result
in respiratory diseases in a shorter period of time. Most health
problems resulting from asbestos exposure are attributed to workers
who have been exposed to airborne asbestos over a prolonged period
without the worker protection that is now required by appropriate
