WESTINGHOUSE ENTERS HAZWASTE LANDFILL BUSINESS

 WESTINGHOUSE ENTERS HAZWASTE LANDFILL BUSINESS
 PITTSBURGH, April 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Westinghouse Electric


Corporation (NYSE: WX) has entered the hazardous waste landfill business through the purchase of a controlling interest in Broadwell Corporation, a California company which plans to build and operate an above-ground repository in the Mojave Desert, it was announced today.
 Additionally, Westinghouse has purchased a minority interest in Greenfield Environmental, Broadwell's parent company.
 Anthony A. Massaro, president of the Westinghouse Environmental Group, said the landfill, to be built in California's San Bernardino County, is the most recent example of Westinghouse's effort to focus its resources on the fast-growing treatment, storage and disposal segment of the environmental services industry.
 "These agreements, our new 70,000 ton-per-year hazardous waste incinerator in Utah and a recently granted RCRA permit for our existing 30,000 ton-per-year incinerator in Kansas enable us to offer our customers a complete range of treatment, storage and disposal options," Massaro said. "Our position in the industry is strengthened significantly."
 Massaro also said that Westinghouse and Greenfield are ideally suited to build and operate the landfill in a socially responsible, low-risk manner. "Westinghouse's commitment to environmental compliance, as evidenced by the outstanding performance record of our facility in Kansas, is unsurpassed in the industry," he said. "Greenfield Environmental shares this commitment to safety and total quality. This will enable us to build a facility that will exceed California's stringent environmental regulations.
 "And because we will be able to control all aspects of design, construction and operation, risks are significantly reduced."
 The arrangements announced today are Westinghouse's second and third partnerships with Greenfield. Previously, the Westinghouse Environmental Group named Greenfield as its exclusive marketing representative in seven western states. Greenfield has a significant west coast sales and marketing capability and Westinghouse operates the nation's western-most hazardous waste incinerator in Tooele County, Utah, about 60 miles west of Salt Lake City.
 Timothy Sparks, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Greenfield, said the partnerships with Westinghouse enable the companies to serve as single source suppliers for waste packaging, remediation, incineration and final disposal services.
 "This is of particular importance in California, which produces about seven percent of the nation's hazardous waste and is the largest market in the United States," he said.
 Through various divisions and subsidiaries, the Westinghouse Environmental Group provides a complete range of services for the effective management of a wide range of wastes. Services offered include site and facility remediation, waste treatment and incineration, packaging and transportation, storage and disposal.
 Greenfield Environmental provides hazardous waste management services to industry and government. Services include treatment, storage and disposal of hazardous wastes, transportation, emergency and remedial services, lab pack and site services and household hazardous waste programs.
