    Chi-Town Not Shy About Demand for Petcoke Regulation
    Entry posted June 27, 2015 by MargaretThiboSuper Contributor in Current Environmental Issues > Current Environmental Issues Blog public
    Title:
    Chi-Town Not Shy About Demand for Petcoke Regulation
    Entry:

    The City of Chicago seems to be treading water when it comes creating environmental regulations regarding the storage of petroleum coke.  Petroleum coke, better known as Petcoke is a powdery hazardous waste material created during the oil refinery process similar in appearance to coal. Petcoke is usually stored and then moved to power plants so it can be used as fuel. Although the byproduct is solid, it is also extremely powdery. It is the dust created by the storage piles that is of concern for Chicago residents. If the dust is inhaled it can lead to health issues.

     

    Early this June, Chicago area environmental groups composed a letter to the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA) expressing the disapproval of the Agency’s decision to not pursue comprehensive laws regarding the storage of petcoke. This decision came as a complete surprise since previous agency actions had indicated that the IEPA would create progressive environmental regulations. In fact, one year ago the IEPA had campaigned for emergency petcoke rules are put into place. This sudden change of heart is not sitting well with the Chicago people.

     

    Critics argue that a lack of regulation on petcoke storage could prove harmful to both residents of Chicago as well as people in surrounding communities. The city has recently prohibited the establishment of any new petcoke storage facilities from being built in the city limits, which is forcing companies to look elsewhere. While limitations of future storage sites are a good thing, there is no regulation of the current process in Chicago or any other Illinois community.

    The entire state of Illinois is at risk of petcoke exposure due to the lack of regulation. The Calumet River which borders a current storage facility flows outside the city limits and could easily be at risk of water contamination. The likelihood only increases if more facilities are built along its shores.  Similarly railways throughout the state would be ideal petcoke storage facilities, many of which are located near the Mississippi River.  Large deliveries of petcoke by barge or railway can also affect the local air quality as they do not by law have to be covered or wetted to prevent clouds of dust.

    Up-gradient LUSTs and a Pump Station on the Property11

    Title:
    Up-gradient LUSTs and a Pump Station on the Property
    Content:

    Currently working on a project which seemed straight forward at first but I've started second guessing myself and would love to hear any of your opinions (JG!). Four up-gradient LUST sites are located approximately 1,000 feet to the south of the Property. They are historic gas station sites that have been around since the mid-1980s. Highest reported benzene 80 ug/L from 2004 Phase II. A creek crosses through the Property. A County Pump Station is located on the south side of the creek on the Property. The LUSTs are 1,000 feet away from the site and 800 feet from the creek. After reaching the creek, contaminants would have to travel an additional 1,000 feet to the Property. Not so much concerned about contaminants reaching the property through the creek as through groundwater. I know 1,000 feet is pretty far for petroleum products, but I'm curious how you guys would treat these LUSTs and if the pump station has any effect on pulling groundwater toward the Property to the point at which it would be a concern.

    Adjoining gas station with releases automatic REC?8

    Title:
    Adjoining gas station with releases automatic REC?
    Content:

    My site is located on the north side of a road... on the south side of the road... approximately 120 feet away... there is a gas station with two reported releases. Both have NFAR. Reported groundwater flow is away from the subject property. I have written it up to be a finding but not a REC or VEC (petroleum, no free product, down gradient). Max benzene around 27 ug/L. My supervisor believes it should be a REC and that most attorneys consider an adjoining gas station with reported releases to be an automatic REC regardless if there's a road between them and it's 120 feet away. He also believes it is a VEC because the vapors, even though site is down-gradient, could travel through preferential flow paths (utility lines) to the subject property. Just curious on your thoughts.

    New York Turning Trash to Treasure

    Title:
    New York Turning Trash to Treasure
    Entry:

    New York City has moved beyond a standard recycling program by experimenting with a new public composting initiative. Currently about 100,000 New York households are participating in this program, composting their organic garbage.

    The program is carefully designed to make composting as simple and un-intrusive to the modern household as possible. The program begins by providing each participating home with two bins. The larger of the bins is on wheels and meant to be kept outdoors. This large bin will be collected by the city based upon a predetermined schedule. The outdoor containers were designed to prevent scavenging animals like rats, skunks, and raccoons from getting in. Advocates for the composting program assure residents that the bins are completely pest proof and will not attract any unwanted neighbors. Part of this means that there will be little to no smell caused by the bin and its rotting contents.

    The second bin is much smaller and meant to be used in the home. This bin is specially designed with tiny vents in its lid to minimize any odors in the house. After all, no one wants their home to smell like rotting garbage. Organic materials can be scraped from the plate into the indoor bucket, and then the lid is snapped back on tightly. Once the indoor bin is full, it can be transferred into the larger outdoor bin.  

    Sanitation officials state that anything that was once alive can be placed in the composting bins, including animal bones and eggshells. Normally, people who compost avoid animal byproducts as they tend to smell and attract scavengers. As previously discussed, the specially designed lids will calm those concerns. They also encourage paper towels and napkins be placed in the bins as they will decompose along with the organic matter. Currently the compost collected by the New York Program is being shipped to two separate farms to the North. Each farm continues to further compost the waste on their property.

    The ultimate goal of the program is to harness the methane gas produced by the composted matter, mix it with the methane produced by solid sewage waste and create usable energy for the city. Almost a decade ago, the New York Environmental Protection Department and the National Grid began researching this possibility. They discovered that if they could mix the two forms of waste in “digester eggs” they could produce enough energy to fuel over 2,500 homes in the area right away.

    For residents that are not yet one of the 100,000 homes participating in the curbside program, the city’s Sanitation Department  offers a large number of drop off locations for do it yourself composters. The website even provides step by step instructions for the more adventurous spirit to create their own worm tank, a home composting system. (The tank is exactly what it sounds like.)

    Aside from goals associated with turning trash into energy treasure, composting helps reduce the amount of land pollution at local landfills. New Your City produces about 25,000 tons of trash a year, so keeping even just a fraction out of the landfill helps.
