- May 10, 2011 - MOREHEAD CITY, N.C. --
Mark Jensen, President of Transport Environmental Systems, Inc., said, “Over the past decade there have been great strides to prevent inadvertent releases of chemicals and oils during processing and production. The probability of chemical and hazardous materials releases increases with the increasing volume of shipments.” There is an expanding focus on water quality. It is important that shippers and receivers insure that they are not quietly sitting on top of a potential pollution source. Dr. Jensen continued, “The only economical way to prevent ground water contamination is at the source.”
