Reporting for zinc at Protec Finishing

Comparison of tracking and quantification.

 REPORTING FOR ZINC AT PROTEC FINISHING

  QUANTITY (Tonnes) PERCENTAGE CHANGE
  2013 2012 CHANGE  
ENTERS FACILITY - USE 100 - 1000 100 - 1000 1 - 10 INCREASE OF 5%
CREATION 0 0 0 n/a
CONTAINED IN PRODUCT 100 - 1000 100 - 1000 1 - 10 INCREASE OF 0.5%

 

Reasons for change – quantities are approximately the same.  

How the facility has reduced the amount of the substance that is used – quantity of the substance has not been reduced.  

How the facility has reduced the amount in product - quantity of the substance in product has not been reduced.

 

Update on timelines.

 

7.0       Implementation of Options for Reduction of Zinc.  

To reduce the use of zinc at the facility, Protec Finishing has plans to implement the following options:  

No options were identified as being technically and economically feasible

7.0       Implementation of Options for Reduction of hydrochloric acid.

To reduce the use of hydrochloric acid at the facility, Protec Finishing has plans to implement the following options:

 

 

Table 8. Description and Timetable for Implementation of Steps of Option # 3

Table 8. Description and Timetable for Implementation of Steps for Equipment or process modification Option.

INCREASED DRAIN TIME PRIOR TO THE PICKLE TANK TO REDUCE DRAG IN WATER. INCREASED DRAIN TIME OVER THE PICKLE TANK TO RECOVER MORE OF THE SOLUTION LOST THROUGH DRAG OUT

Step

Description

Estimated timelines

1

Determination of amount of additional time required to achieve a 25% reduction in drag out on the Lake line and Enterprise line

Mar 31, 2013

 

It was determined that an additional two minutes of drain time would be required to reduce the drag out by 25%

Completed April 26, 2013.

2

Evaluation on the effect of production of using the increased dwell times on the Lake line and Enterprise line

June 30, 2013

 

It was determined that increasing the drain time by an additional two minutes would have a significant adverse effect on the productivity of the production line making it economically unfeasible to implement.

Completed May 2, 2013.

3

Programming of PLC computers with additional dwell times.

Dec 31, 2013

 

Option will not be implemented as the effect on production makes it economically unfeasible to implement.

Completed May 2, 2013.

 

 

 

 

Reporting for nitric acid at Protec Finishing:

 

Comparison of tracking and quantification.

 REPORTING FOR NITRIC ACID AT PROTEC FINISHING

  QUANTITY (Tonnes) PERCENTAGE CHANGE
  2013 2012 CHANGE  
ENTERS FACILITY - USE 10 - 100 10 - 100 0 - 10 DECREASE OF 16%
CREATION 0 0 0 n/a
CONTAINED IN PRODUCT 0 0 0 n/a

 

Reasons for change – increasein production levels.  

How the facility has reduced the amount of the substance that is used – quantity of the substance has not been reduced.  

How the facility has reduced the amount in product – substance is not present in the product.

 

Update on timelines.

 

7.0       Implementation of Options for Reduction of nitric acid.  

To reduce the use of nitric acid at the facility, Protec Finshing has no plans to implement any options to reduce the use

of nitric acid at Protec Finishing as no technically/financially feasible options were identified.
