Get on board with federal government regulations and SPCC complianceby using durable railroad spill containment and prevention systems. Take control of harmful railcar spills and leaks before you’re legally forced to do so, face an employee injury, or get bad press for environmental pollution.
Transloading is the process of transferring liquids from railcars to trucks and vice versa.The federal government requires spill prevention containersor “railcar secondary containment” to catch incidental spills that may occur during railroad transfer operations.
Most transloading facilities need a transloading spill containment plan with railroad spill containment to meet federal safety guidelines. You need a transloading plan if there is a likelihood of oil discharge into local navigable waterways and if your facility handles petroleum and/or non-petroleum oils, among other criteria.
