This is a chance for community residents, and allies to turn out and let the Governing Board and Staff known that a Ban on MHF must happen NOW! We cant wait any longer to get rid of DEADLY MHF in two California Refineries (Wilmington, Valero and Torrance, Exxon Mobile)
We must make sure AQMD boards knows our lives are not a bargain we are willing to take, and they must BAN MHF from the only two California refineries to use the chemical.
-MHF (Modified Hydrofluoric Acid) is one of the world’s most dangerous chemicals – exposure can cause deep lingering burns, lung fluid, permanent lung damage, and death. (Center for Disease Control)
-If released, it can travel many miles as a low cloud. According to US EPA’s Valero & Torrance Risk Management Plans (RMP), a release can travel for miles (for example, a Mobil (now Torrance) RMP says a plume could travel 3.2 miles, Valero’s even farther). These hazard zones include hundreds of thousands of people in the LA area. Risks after potential exposure include serious irreversible injuries, including death.
This is a risk that is too great to ignore our SCAQMD must act now!
