Emission Reduction: partnership with Corning and Syracuse China to reduce lead releases


Printer-friendly version

The 1997 Toxic Release Inventory (TRI) data identified Corning Inc. and Syracuse China Manufacturing Co. as the top two releasers of lead and lead compounds in New York State. The purpose of this project was to identify the unit operations of the glass and ceramic processes at the two companies that contribute to high emissions of lead, and to assist in implementing cost effective solutions. As a result of this project, as well as other factors, the level of lead used in the glass and china processes at both companies is decreasing; the release of lead to airways from both companies reflects this reduction.

1. As a result of this project, will further data be collected, monitoring be conducted, or additional problem identification studies undertaken? Will refinements be made to modeling or exposure and/or toxicity assumptions?


2. If the project is complete, what recommendations were made to reduce risk and/or emissions or otherwise mitigate the impacts of the problems identified as a result of this project?

Positive results could lead to future cooperation with other companies

3. If the project is complete, were reduction activity emissions or risk reductions calculated?    


3.a. Are reduction factors being developed?    


3.b. What are the expected reductions achieved by the individual activities?


3.c. Additional Comments:


4. Will the results of this project contribute to regulatory development, enforcement actions, or voluntary actions?


5. Are future projects/efforts planned or refined as a result of this project?
