Trédi Argentina has consolidated for more than 20 years as a reference in the management and treatment of PCB contaminated waste (polychlorinated biphenyls).Trédi International, a subsidiary of the Séché Group, has earned worldwide recognition of large industries, governments and international institutions (UN, UNDP, FAO, UNIDO, World Bank) in the management and treatment of highly hazardous waste.
Faced with the current environmental and climatic emergency, Séché is positioned as a leading actor in this profound social transformation.
The Circular Economy is approaching a utopia*, which seeks to build an ideal organization of society (or close to it) based on a modification of behaviors. A reorganization that must be reconsidered, for the common good of Humanity. This reorganization seeks to preserve resources, and waste is an important component to consider, as well as frugality in our consumption.
At Trédi Argentina, we specialize in the integrated management of Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCB), in strict compliance with environmental regulations and the standards of the Séché Environnement Group. But what are Polychlorinated Biphenyls or PCB? What is the impact on health and the environment?
Act4Nature International is an initiative that aims to mobilize leaders from all economic sectors to treat biodiversity as an issue that is equally important as climate change. Séché Environnement is proud to be one of the first eleven French companies to join the alliance, confirming its support for the initiative.
In the context of the pandemic that affects the world in this last year, in Trédi Argentina the protocols of security and hygiene have been reinforced. Considering the well-being of our employees, several measures have been taken to avoid any possible propagation of the virus COVID-19.
After successfully performing the dechlorination treatment of dielectric mineral oils with PCB content under the 2016-2017 Pilot Project sponsored by the Ministry of the Environment in Colombia, Trédi Argentina and Ocade SAS decided to continue their collaborative project.
On January 3, and complying with its Environmental Liability Mitigation Plan, a process of transfer of Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCB) contaminated waste for its subsequent export and disposal, was carried out at the Laurelty Complex in San Lorenzo.
Trédi Argentina participated in the Seminar "Dissemination of experience with dechlorination technology for the treatment of oils and decontamination of transformers with PCB contents" in Bogotá-Colombia.
After 18 months of work, the Project “Environmentally Sound Management and Disposal of Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs) in Peru” was completed.
Within the framework of the Project, a total of 263 PCB contaminated transformers (156 tons) belonging to 17 companies was managed in Peru.
The main objective of the Workshop was the exchange of information on PCB management through a life cycle management approach, from inventories to environmental management (MEDE) of PCBs, in accordance with The Stockholm Convention on Persistent organic pollutants. The event was structured in three main themes.
The purpose of the PILOT PROJECT is to “Implement and start a pilot or semi-industrial scale PCB treatment project by means of dechlorination processes, catalytic oxidation or other physical-chemical treatment.
Within the framework of the National Program of the Ministry of Environment of Morocco, UNDP, UNIDO and GEF, TREDI SA, a subsidiary of the Séché Group, installed a treatment and rehabilitation platform for PCB contaminated transformers and oil.
The Regional Workshop to Share Experiences on the Management of PCBs and Chemical Substances in Central and South America was held in Cali Colombia and is part of the project “Capacity Development for Environmentally Sound Management and Disposal of PCBs” that Colombia organizes , in coordination with the UNDP Regional Office in Panama.
The Ministry of Environment of Ecuador, through the GEF - UNDP partnership initiative, advances in its process of government support for the implementation of the Project "Integrated and Environmentally Sound Management of PBCs in Ecuador".
