Document Description
Pollution Control Industries of California intends to install three semi-circular eight foot diameter vent hoods. Two hoods for acid and caustic wastes will be in the Storage Building. The third, for the organic waste, will be located outside of the Storage Building. These units are installed to control air emissions from the operation of bulking into containers to protect the worker's safety. The acid and caustic hoods will be attached to neutralization scrubbers which use sodium hydroxide and hydrochloric acid respectively. The organic hood will utilize a carbon adsorption scrubber. Acid and caustic scrubbers are exempted from the Sacramento Metropolitan Air Quality Management District permitting requirement. A Permit To Construct has already been issued for the organic scrubber on July 13, 2001.
