|Subject||Switch to trivalent chromium!|
I ask that you finally take action to end the practice of boiling highly toxic metals near the places our children attend school, near our churches, near our local business, and next to the neighborhoods where we live, work, play, and pray. Over half the chrome platers in California are near a school, church, or neighborhood. Switching to trivalent chromium has the benefit of not only significantly reducing the toxic emissions of one of the most dangerous chemicals known into our communities, but facilities using trivalent chromium avoid having to use toxic PFAS-based fume suppressants as well. Please take this important action in the Chrome Plating ATCM now, to gain early reductions in the many communities affected by the decorative chrome platers, and to commit to early action to switch both the anodizer and hard chrome platers away from hexavalent chromium as soon as feasible alternatives can be identified. Thank you for your commitment to protecting the health and well-being of our most impacted communities and your continued public service.
