Rapid and Accurate Identification of coal tar in road binder

Roads built before 1990 often used binder that contained coal tar, an absolute hazardous material. During road or utilities repairs, excavated road surface material must be correctly classified as hazardous or non hazardous before removal and disposal.

This seminar discusses the options.
