Welcome to the Shieldalloy Metallurgical Corporation (SMC) decommissioning project for the Newfield, NJ facility.  

Last updated: December 17, 2010

SMC is committed to implementing the safest and most environmentally responsible solution to the legacy environmental issues that exist on the site. We will post documents relating to the decommissioning, updates on the status of the project, and other information that we hope will assist interested parties in understanding the scope of the project, the approach being used, and its progress.
