What:      Symposium: Assessing and Managing Toxic Risk from Alternative VOC Compound

Where:      SCAQMD Headquarters in Diamond Bar, California

When: Wednesday, October 29, 2014 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Link for more details.

In the ongoing effort to meet more stringent federal ozone standards, the South Coast Air Quality Management District in Diamond Head, California continues to seek VOC emissions reductions from stationary and area sources in the South Coast Air Basin.

One strategy to achieve this goal is to continue to lower limits on the VOC content of coatings, solvents, adhesives, sealants, lubricants, inks and other VOC containing products. Manufacturers have responded by reformulating their products to meet new VOC limits, in many cases using alternative compounds that have been exempted from the definition of VOC. These exemptions are based primarily on evidence that the compound does not significantly contribute to ozone formation, but may also consider other factors such as toxicity and climate impacts.

Recently, the SCAQMD has been faced with a variety of issues regarding the potential toxic risk posed by compounds proposed for exemption, or otherwise anticipated to have increased use, when proposed rules are analyzed under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). These issues include aspects of both risk assessment and risk management.

This symposium will include presentations from experts from the regulatory, industrial, academic, and environmental communities exploring these critical issues from different perspectives. The objective is to provide SCAQMD with expert advice and potential future direction regarding the analysis and mitigation of potential toxic risks associated with alternative VOC compounds.

2014 P2 Week Poster-2

Pollution Prevention Week begins the third Monday in September each year. The week is an opportunity for individuals, businesses, and government to emphasize and highlight their pollution prevention and sustainability activities and achievements, expand current pollution prevention efforts, and commit to new actions.

Pollution Prevention Week is the time when businesses, environmental groups and citizens can join forces for a common cause. By sharing information about pollution prevention (P2), businesses can become more competitive, businesses and government can realize cost savings, and environmental quality can be enhanced.

NPPR prepared a toolkit to assist organizations in their planning and communication for Pollution Prevention Week. This toolkit contains ideas for social media messages, links to websites with information about safe chemicals, sample press releases, recipes for home cleaning and alternative yard care. Here are the themes for each day of the week:

  • Day 1 – P2 and Clean Air
  • Day 2 – P2 Results
  • Day 3 – EPA and green house gases
  • Day 4 – Energy Efficiency and Renewables
  • Day 5 – Climate Change

The Southwest Energy Efficiency Project (SWEEP) has released a report showing that NV Energy is a leader in the Southwest and the nation in promoting clean electric vehicle transportation.

Through its Shared Investment Program, NV Energy has facilitated the installation of nearly half the public electric vehicle charging stations in the state. Since 2009, the utility has offered a special electric vehicle billing rate that encourages people to charge their cars late at night, when demand is at its lowest and power plants typically are underutilized.

Customers in Northern Nevada, for example, who charge their cars between 10 pm and 6 am, pay 6.3 cents per kWh compared to the normal residential rate of 10.2 cents. In Southern Nevada, where electricity use spikes during the hot summer months, EV drivers who charge their cars between 10 pm and 6 am pay about 7 cents per kWh in summer and about 5 cents in winter compared to normal residential rates of 12 cents.

According to the report, “NV Energy: Leading the Way on Electric Vehicles,” electric vehicles are the cleanest transportation option in Nevada. About 66 percent of Nevada’s electricity was produced by natural gas in 2013. The remaining electricity generation comes from coal and renewable energy. Legislation passed in 2013 puts the utility on a path to retire 550 MW of coal-fired electricity generation in 2014 and another 250 MW by 2017, making Nevada a leader in the Southwest in moving away from coal and toward more renewable energy and clean-burning natural gas.

NV Energy developed its Shared Investment Program to improve range confidence and provided $500,000 to help fund new electric vehicle charging stations around the state. During 2013, the utility partnered with private and public sector entities to set up 133 individual charging ports at more than 47 locations statewide.

Employers who provide charging to their employees were also eligible to participate in the program. NV Energy offered partners up to $7,000 off the cost of a dual port charger, about half the cost.

The report comes as good news to NV Energy, which saw its energy-efficiency programs decline in 2013.

Oscar-nominated director Filmmaker, Markus Imhoof, is getting international attention with his award winning film. “More Than Honey” covers the concern worldwide over declining bee health. Over the past 15 years, bee populations have mysteriously decreased at an alarming rate; a trend which could devastate the world food supply. Several contributing factors are suspected including parasites, disease, poor nutrition, exposure to pesticides, new viruses, and travel stress. Already Imhoof has received dozens of awards internationally.

Date/Time: Wednesday, June 5 – 11:00 AM PDT

The e-waste recovery infrastructure fostered by the CEW recycling program has resulted in approximately 1.2 billion pounds of obsolete TVs and monitors collected and dismantled in California over the past seven years. However, traditional markets for used CRT glass have diminished, creating challenges for recyclers looking for outlets for this material, even as an increasing amount of non-CRT video displays are joining the e-waste stream. CalRecycle and DTSC have been working on revised regulations to address this. Speakers Jeff Hunts from CalRecycle and Kevin Sanchez from DTSC will present an update on regulations and also provide a review of the e-waste claims and reporting processes.

Webinar: Colony Collapse Disorder and What’s Being Done to Protect our Pollinators

Date/Time: Tuesday, June 11 – 11:00 AM PDT

 

walterhaefekerThe decline of bees is getting global attention as we risk losing the ecosystem services these important pollinators provide.   On April 29, it was announced that the European Union will enforce the world’s first near continent-wide ban on widely used insecticides found to present an unacceptable risk to bees when properly applying the precautionary principle.

 

Walter Haefeker, a beekeeper in Bavaria serving as the President of the European Professional Bee Keepers Association helped lead the European beekeeping community’s efforts to support the EU Commission’s proposal to restrict the use of 3 neonicotinoids (clothianidin, imidacloprid and thiametoxam) for seed treatment, soil application (granulate) and foliar treatment on bee attractive plants and cereals.

 

During this Webinar, Walter will speak about critical issues facing bees today including diseases, pesticides, genetically modified crops and intensive agricultural practices.  He will share his experience working in coordination with environ- mental NGOs and family farmers organizations towards more bee-friendly friendly production of food, textiles and energy. He will discuss the successful “Fair Milk” campaign where Walter worked together with independent German dairy farmers to use bee friendly methods of feed production and land management.

 

He will also provide insights into a new cooperation with the German Biogas Producers organization to replace corn with flowering plants to produce renewable energy and honey while promoting biodiversity and regenerating soil. Finally, Walter will introduce a new international label developed and owned by the beekeeping community, which is designed to mobilize consumer demand for certified bee-friendly production.
