PARSIPPANY, N.J., July 21, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — PBF Energy Inc. (NYSE:PBF) today commented on the Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD) Board members’ decision to adopt Proposed Amended Rule (PAR) 6-5 related to particulate emissions from refinery Fluid Catalytic Cracking (FCC) units in the Bay Area.
Paul Davis, President of PBF Energy’s Western Region, stated, «We have been working closely throughout the rule-making process with BAAQMD staff and anticipated today’s outcome. Importantly, the rule-making requires refineries to meet a specific emissions standard by 2026, without requiring the installation of a wet gas scrubber or any other specific technology.»
Mr. Davis concluded, «PBF has previously planned projects that will be implemented over the coming months that will allow our Martinez refinery to achieve emissions reductions significantly closer to the desired level in the first quarter of 2022. We will continue to work with the BAAQMD to arrive at our mutually desired goal of improving air quality and continuing to provide our vital products to one of the largest fuel markets in the world.»
