The Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA) has updated its website to include the Q2 data related to Vantage’s permit. Public Act 101-0023.  Vantage’s Construction Permit limits the facility to 110 pounds of emissions annually of which no more than 60 pounds can be fugitive emissions.  The results indicate Vantage has released 14.39 pounds (13.08% of permitted annual total) of EtO cumulatively year-to-date, of which 11.92 pounds (19.86% of permitted annual total) were fugitive emissions.

The submission noted “Vantage Specialties did not have any deviations from the requirements of Construction Permit No, 19100015 during the reporting period…”.  It also noted, “There were no leaking components in all of Q2 2022…”.
