|Subject||A question for the CARB Board|
Considering that CARB is expert in pollution control methods and chrome platers are experts in chrome plating, how is it possible for CARB to imagine that a replacement technology for hard hexavalent chrome plating will emerge by 2039 , but CARB is not able to imagine an improvement in hex chrome pollution control methods over the same period? Only a ban will suffice. By virtue of this non-emission based proposal, CARB has explicitly assumed that they will make no improvements in pollution control methods for the next 16 years. If I was a member of CARB staff focused on improving pollution control methods, I would find this very de-motivating. If I was granting budget to CARB to make improvements in pollution control methods, I would slash the budget. But, what will the CARB Board do?
