This service is for anyone involved in excavation works where Asphalt Waste Containing Coal Tar (AWCCT) is present e.g. local authorities.

It is essential that testing is carried out to:

  • Identify the composition of the material in question
  • Determine whether or not it is hazardous
  • Assess the material for safe disposal or re-use

The presence of coal tar can have major implications for a construction project due to the health and safety issues posed by handling the material as well as the additional cost that comes with the removal and disposal of a potentially hazardous waste. Early identification, via site investigation, is vital in reducing costs and delays and implementing suitable solutions.

We are a UKAS accredited testing laboratory (No.0529) for this scope of accreditations.
