Fiberglass has a wide range of uses and applications in global manufacturing. Cars and boats are among the world’s largest producers and users of fiberglass products. Fiberglass is common in many manufacturing processes and products and while it serves them well it is not environmentally friendly. Fiberglass products like boats have an end of life point when they can nolonger be of use and have to be terminated. And termination typically means going to a landfill. Statistics vary, but even if you take a conservative number it’s estimated that as many as 25+ million boats are nearing the end of their life cycle in a given year and destined for a nearby landfill.
Unfortunately, it can take up to 400 years for fiberglass to decompose in landfills making it a predatory and generational environmental hazard. Terra Nova Solutions is certified in cutting-edge fiberglass recycling, repurposing, and waste. Our technicians and partners are trained in fiberglass recycling with the goal of zero landfill waste
Manufacturers producing fiberglass products store a lot of their resin for production, which is considered a highly flammable hazardous material, in bulk tanks. Our partner is a preferred provider of specialized tank cleaning services for structures holding this and other heat-sensitive materials. We utilize a highly experienced crew and specialized equipment including a boiler trailer to remove a variety of hardened resins, often greatly reducing the personnel exposure to confined space conditions. Our team can manage your fiberglass waste including resin tank management and cleaning.
Resin and other hazardous waste associated with the boat and automotive industry often is collected in drums or bulk. The safe and effective removal of hazardous and non-hazardous waste requires professionally trained and certified personnel. At Terra Nova Solutions, we have the people and the resources to remove your waste in an environmentally safe manner that meets local, state, and federal requirements by combining compliance and customer service,
