The Message to Deliver: Two Years & Not Safe — Enough is Enough — Require Refinery Conversion from HF to a Vastly Safer Alternative — HF/MHF Must GO!
Read what the South Coast Air Quality Management District Governing Board did two years ago on that fateful day Friday, September 6, 2019 in the Los Angeles Times article:
40-ton debris lands within 5 feet from MHF tanks at the Torrance refinery in 2015
TRAA & Allies Will Attend the Sept 3 SCAQMD Meeting with a Clear Message:
- Since September 6, 2019, neither refinery added mitigation measures that would prevent a massive, deadly release of HF.
- The report from the US Chemical Safety Board, “Fire and Explosions at Philadelphia Energy Solutions Refinery Hydrofluoric Acid Alkylation Unit”, revealed a large release of HF did, in fact, occur in the Philadelphia explosion — another near miss for the community.
- Modern, vastly safer and more efficient technology alternatives to HF are available and have been successfully proven at commercial scale at Chevron’s Salt Lake City refinery.
