Source Testing Required for PCS Phosphate Use of Ore From Outside Aurora, NC The North Carolina DAQ issued permit T31 to PCS Phosphate in Beaufort County to specify source test requirements if ore from outside of Auroro is processed at the site. The use of "imported ore" to manufacture phosphoric acid requires testing for fluoride, SO2, and total reduced sulfur (TRS). The emissions of SO2 and TRS are regulated under New Source Review, while the fluoride emissions must meet the NC toxic air pollutant requirements.

Dupont Tests Air Emissions at APFO Plant Dupont Fayetteville Works recently conducted testing of air emissions from the APFO plant. There has been increasing concern during the past year that the spread of APFO, also known as C8, in the environment around the plant may have resulted in part from plant emissions of C8 into air. The APFO source testing was conducted for the processing of both "virgin material" and "re-worked material" received at the plant. (See excerpts from the stack test protocol.)
