Removal of tanks, cleaning or removal of scrubber systems, re-routing of utilities or any change to a production line that requires partial demolition and decontamination.

In-Plant Services

We employ full-time, 40-HAZWOPER trained technicians with direct experience in the semiconductor facility environment to enhance or augment staffing. Our technicians work every day at the facility acting as Emergency Response Technicians for unplanned spills, provide spot decontamination, assist with maintenance activities involving hazardous chemicals, operate as waste managers and other day-to-day tasks. This program offers relief to our customers that have employees burdened with extra duties that often take away from their primary function of productivity.

Tool Decontamination

BELFOR Environmental and BELFOR Technical Services partner as a cohesive unit to ensure tool decontamination, disconnecting, shipping with applicable documentation is integrated into any type of project involving tooling within a semiconductor facility.

Asset Recovery

A primary function for any decommissioning project to compliantly manage all waste streams and to evaluate all options for efficiency. Using existing abatement systems and waste water treatment facilities during decommissioning reduces disposal costs and environmental impact. BELFOR Environmental focuses on decontaminating components to recyclable material and recovering assets for re-use or sale which often delivers financial efficiency while minimizing waste.
