SubjectCORRECTION and APOLOGY to the Board

I have been informed by a knowleddgeable party that the premise of my comment made on 12-2-2022 was incorrect. There are some hex chrome plating firms that do use PFAS fume suppressants. They do that because PFOS was banned but not PFAS. Some platers do use PFAS fume suppressants; purportedly because their air permits require it.

So, I apologize to the CARB board for my ignorant statement.

Our facility does not use PFAS or PFOS and never has. That would seem to make us a potential asset to the State of California - A hex chrome plater, with HEPA controls and no PFAS/PFOS dependency or liability and with a mission to support the national aviation infrastructure and the national defense. Yet, the ATCM bans us.
