Great Lakes Ships:
MEC, Inc. was contracted to provide mercury abatement on many Great Lakes cargo ships docked in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Ohio. The work involved decontamination in various areas throughout the vessels and was accomplished during the winter months.
Ohio High School:
In the winter of 2005/2006, MEC, Inc. was contacted to conduct the largest mercury clean-up project in the history of the state of Ohio. The work involved the complete decontamination of a high school that had a fire which released mercury vapor throughout the building. The project included decontamination and/or disposal of every single item in the building. Books, musical instruments, computers, furniture - virtually every single item was either decontaminated or disposed of as contaminated material. The building itself was systematically disassembled leaving only the original outside block walls and roof trusses. The project lasted approximately four months and was completed on schedule to allow rebuilding of the structure in time for the 2006 fall semester.
