Sierra Club Requests Public Hearing on Delaware City Refinery

The Delaware Chapter of the Sierra Club is requesting a public hearing on changes to the Delaware City Refinery air emissions permits. Without a demonstrable increase in capacity, the facility is requesting permission to increase emissions of substances such as sulfuric acid and lead, as well as overall particulate matter and volatile organic compounds (VOCs).  This facility came under scrutiny by the media in October 2011 for repeated hydrogen cyanide releases noticed by our Office Administrator and Alerts subscriber Teri.
