Proposal details

This proposal is for an amendment to the Limited Operational Flexibility for an Environmental Compliance Approval (air & noise) No. 1227-A32Q8W for Digital Specialty Chemicals Limited, a manufacturer of custom chemicals for the electronics, pharmaceutical, and biotechnology industries located in the City of Toronto, Ontario.

The emission sources from the manufacturing and associated processes that discharge to the air include cleaning, mixing, chemical reactions, filtration, distillation, siphoning, and packaging.

The amendment includes a higher production capacity, installation of a new air treatment system, and other processing and ancillary modifications.

Emissions to the air from this facility include:

  • lanthanum trichoride
  • nitrogen oxides
  • triethyl phosphite
  • phosphorus pentoxide
  • trimethylchlorosilane
  • hydrochloric acid
  • hexamethyldisilazane

The Environmental Compliance Approval with Limited Operational Flexibility (Air), when issued, permits modifications to the facility subject to limits on operational flexibility that include a production limit for the facility to be specified on the Environmental Compliance Approval with Limited Operational Flexibility (air).

The limited operational flexibility conditions have an expiry date. The company will be required to make an application for amendment at that time to renew these conditions.
