Comment 11 for Proposed Amendments to the ATCM for Chromium Electroplating and Chromic Acid Anodizing Operations (chromeatcm2023) - 45 Day.

SubjectProposed Amendments to the Airborne Toxic Control Measure for Chromium
Many communities around California are overburdened by hexavalent
chromium, as the slides shown today have demonstrated. 
The use of these toxic chemicals can cause serious health problems
for workers and local residents alike. 
Switching to trivalent chromium has the benefit of not only
significantly reducing the toxic emissions of one of the most
dangerous chemicals known in our communities but facilities using
trivalent chromium avoid having to use other toxic fume
suppressants as well.
Respectfully I, urge the board to take this important action in the
Chrome Plating ATCM now, to gain early reductions in the many
communities affected by the decorative chrome platers.
