Markets | Industrial Laundries
EEC Environmental (EEC) has extensive qualifications for engineering, environmental, and construction services for the industrial laundry industry. EEC has provided services to all the major laundry chains and many regional and independent industrial laundries. This significant presence in the industrial laundry industry has provided EEC an unparalleled ability to understand the needs, issues, and concerns in all aspects of the industry, including acquisition of a new property or business, daily operation, permitting, compliance, construction, regulatory negotiations, litigation support, site investigation and remediation, and safety.
EEC Environmental has significant experience with the evaluation of industrial laundry facilities that have been impacted by petroleum, chlorinated solvents, and other contaminants. EEC performs a wide range of activities for the laundry industry, including Phase I Environmental Site Assessments (ESAs), compliance services, Phase II subsurface investigations, insurance cost-recovery, remedial services, regulatory negotiations, and litigation support. Further, EEC provides a broad base of general compliance services to the industrial laundry industry, including regulatory compliance, permitting, emergency business plans, emergency response, safety, Underground Storage Tanks (USTs) compliance, and state-specific compliance such as compliance with California’s SB989.
EEC’s Engineering and Construction divisions often combine to perform design-build projects for the industrial laundry industry predominately related to industrial wastewater treatment/compliance and equipment installations. These include dissolved air flotation systems, sludge dewatering systems, washers, dryers, boilers, heat exchangers, and chemical storage and delivery systems.
EEC has unique laundry wastewater consulting expertise and has helped more than 50 laundries achieve compliance with stringent sewer discharge limits (19 states nationally as well as international clients). This work includes negotiating reasonable compliance limits based on technically based arguments and reducing treatment costs or wastewater surcharges through chemical treatment adjustments. EEC also designed the terminal radar service area (TRSA) Clean Green Program and performed a comprehensive water reuse study for a national chain.
