Toxic Air Contaminant Reduction for Compliance with SCAQMD Rules 1420.1 and 1402 Exide Project
Document Type
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration

Document Description
The proposed project is intended to reduce toxic emissions of arsenic, benzene and 1,3-butadiene to comply with the recent amendments made to SCAQMD Rule 1420.1 - Emission Standards for Lead and Other Toxic Air Contaminants from Large Lead-Acid Battery Recycling Facilities, as well as to assure compliance with requirements to SCAQMD Rule 1402 - Control of Toxic Air Contaminants from Existing Sources including the proposed Final Revised Risk Reduction Plan. This will be accomplished by ensuring exhaust gas streams containing high levels of arsenic emissions are vented to appropriate air pollution control systems capable of controlling arsenic emissions which exist in gaseous or unfilterable form. The proposed project will also control gas streams containing gaseous organic air contaminants, carbon monoxide, and oxides of sulfur which previously escaped control because they were vented only to dry filter media or were emitted into the building enclosure due to a lack of sufficient negative pressure in the reverberatory and blast furnaces.
