Type, Section or Code
Cal. Code Regs., tit 14, §15301; Cal. Code Regs., tit 14, § 15303
Reasons for Exemption
This project will involve minor alteration of existing mechanical equipment at an existing food processing facility and will result in negligible or no expansion of the existing use. The condensing heat recovery system consists of heat recovery economizer units, heat exchangers, pumps, fans, control dampers, support structures, and associated mechanical and electrical components. The materials used to construct the system are chemically inert, not hazardous to human health, and do not have a significant effect on the environment. In addition, all required permits for installation and operation of the system will be obtained prior to system installation and demonstration. The demonstrations will not have a significant impact on local air quality, noise, or traffic, and is expected to reduce local criteria pollutant emissions. For these reasons, the project will not have a significant effect on the environment and falls under the categorical exemption listed in 14 C.C.R.15301. See NOE for full details.
