Re: Recognition of PMNs P-05-530 and P0-5-531 as 2006 New Chemicals Program
Pollution Prevention (P2) Recognition Award Recipient
Dear Ms. Savini:
It is a special honor for me to congratulate you for commencing manufacture of new chemicals with particular merit for their potential to prevent pollution in the environment. The above-referenced Premanufacture Notifications (PMNs), which you submitted under section 5 of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) and for which you have submitted a Notice of Commencement, are being recognized for their "pollution prevention" (P2) potential.
As you are aware, the Agency has reinvigorated its New Chemicals P2 Recognition Project for submitters of innovative new chemicals which are selected for recognition because they promote source reduction as well as safety goals, in particular when the innovative chemistries substitute for existing chemicals posing greater risks. EPA has selected your company for this recognition for the following reasons: The PMN substances are replacements for high sulfur lubricants. This reduced sulfur level is expected to have two major environmental impacts: to directly reduce particulate levels and also protect emission control devices in exhaust after-treatment systems.
Since limited information on this new chemical is currently available to EPA, I would like to request that you keep EPA informed of the commercial success of this substance. Please submit any new information that you consider helpful in this context and any new toxicity data that becomes available to the Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics Document Control Office, EPA East Building, 1201 Constitution Avenue, N.W., Room # 6428, Washington, D.C. 20004, (202) 564-8930. Again, I congratulate Innospec Fuel Specialties on your efforts.
