Waste Packaging Product Overview

NAC LPT’s principals pioneered the development, testing, and certification for many types of innovative containers and flexible packaging systems used in the waste industry today. They introduced the DOT-certified IP-1 intermodal waste container in the 1990s built under an NQA-1 quality program and capable of shipment by rail, truck, and water.

Other innovative designs include large-capacity intermodal containers, with and without lead shielding. These can be transported by rail and truck, and they can be expanded to use flexible packaging for environmental restoration projects of all types.

Our hands-on experience in packaging wastes of all types and forms will work to your advantage when choosing the proper container or package for the project. We sell and lease the following types of containers and packaging systems.

Consulting Services

The appropriate packaging system improves efficiency and safety, and reduces costs.

Our consulting services draw upon decades of experience in developing and providing packaging solutions that work extremely well. We collaborate with you to determine your project’s parameters and the wastes to package and transport.

Our expertise comes from our success in revolutionizing how the wastes at the site of a decommissioned nuclear power plant were packaged and transported for final disposition. We introduced specialty IP-1 certified intermodal containers manufactured and certified for use in the industry.

As a result, NAC LPT’s principals changed the industry’s use of small metal boxes loaded with size-reduced material to containers that are 500 percent larger and reusable. By reducing handling requirements and sizing of materials, these measures significantly lowered project costs.

In turn, success with these new containers helped accelerate cleanup of many major sites. At the same time, they provided the sites and contractors with significant cost savings and improved safety and ALARA benefits.

Today you can choose the correct container or other packaging product to achieve your project’s goals.

Some of our services include:
  • Waste material characterization review and consultation services to choose the correct packaging option for your specific project requirements and the transportation methods to be employed.
  • Strategic planning that that takes into account the best, most cost-effective packaging and transport options, so these are engineered into the project or process operation design. This ensures they aren’t added later as an afterthought.
  • Container and packaging design and supply services for custom shapes, shielding requirements or for use with a specific purpose or design feature.
  • Sourcing and supply of the required packaging or containers, including:
    • Metal Containers
    • Intermodal Containers
    • Cargo Containers
    • Flexible Packaging
