  • (1888PressRelease) March 22, 2011 - The MACK Group, LLC completed the asbestos abatement of a 400ft high concrete coal fired power plant stack in Northeast Pennsylvania. The project consisted of the asbestos abatement of 20,000sf of asbestos containing rubberized paint 1/8" thick on the exterior of the 400ft high stack while the stack remained in operation.

    Because the aging concrete stack was in need of repair a structural carbon fiber shell was proposed for the stack to give it a new life. This carbon fiber shell would allow for the stack to not to have to be demolished and completely rebuilt but remain in operation and be refurbished. In order for this carbon fiber shell to be put in place, all the exterior asbestos containing paint needed to be removed from the stack. Three 400ft high pump jack towers were put in place surrounding the stack. These towers were then plasticized and put under HEPA negative air filtration. The MACK Group workers then utilized specialized HEPA equipped powered hand tools to remove the rubberized asbestos paint. Since the stack was still in operation and emitting noxious gases the top 50ft of the stack MACK Group workers increased the PPE to Type C supplied air. The MACK Group's PA licensed asbestos workers brought this unique and challenging project in on schedule and without injury.
