In addition to its energy projects, RSE has provided hazardous materials/emergency planning services to the following projects.

Aroostook Valley Electric Company; Fort Fairfield, Maine. Integrated Pollution Prevention Plan for a 33 megawatt, wood-fired electric power generating facility. This plan integrates requirements for oil pollution prevention, stormwater pollution prevention, and hazardous chemical emergency response.

Hydra-Co Enterprises, Inc.; Craven County Wood Energy Project; New Bern, North Carolina. Environmental compliance program, emergency response planning, and hazardous materials inspection for a 45-net-megawatt wood-fired electric power generating facility. RSE prepared an integrated spill and emergency response plan for the facility to meet both oil pollution prevention and chemical emergency planning requirements. Findings of the plant inspection were accompanied by recommendations for improving plant procedures and reducing environmental risks. RSE created a unique worksheet for simplifying inventory analysis and determination of reporting requirements.

Madison Paper Industries; Madison, Maine. Spill and emergency response plan for a paper manufacturing facility producing 500 tons per day of uncoated, supercalendered groundwood magazine papers. RSE conducted a hazard analysis of the oils and hazardous materials stored and used at the facility, which included bulk fuel oil, waste oil, xylene, chlorine, methyl chloride, solvents, acids, caustics, and hazardous waste. Results of this analysis were incorporated into spill and emergency response procedures.

Lincoln Pulp & Paper Company; Lincoln, Maine. Spill and emergency response plan for a paper manufacturing facility producing 600 tons per day of bleached kraft pulp, cut-size papers, and tissue. This plan integrates oil pollution prevention and chemical emergency planning requirements into a single document.
