Gainesville, Virginia (September 10, 2014) - The September 2014 issue of Lubes'n'Greases Magazine featured an article on NORA's Fight to Reform the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) titled "Toxic Oils, Lethal Rules". Lubes'n'Greases, a major industry publication for the global lubricants and grease industry, reaches over 16,700 subscribers each month.
In this article, NORA Executive Director Scott Parker and NORA General Counsel Chris Harris are interviewed regarding the association's proposal to reform PCB/TSCA in order to protect members who are responsible participants within the industry.
“What we’re dealing with is not intentional blending— that is wrong and should not occur,” Parker said. “What we are seeing is an increase in unintentional blending; dilution that occurs as a result of circumstances that our industry cannot prevent based on existing testing measures and other constraints.”
Scott Parker noted that EPA recognizes that oil collectors and processors are being unfairly penalized, and seems willing to work with NORA and other stakeholders on revising TSCA/PCB policy.
"The group of people from EPA that is working on this is extremely interested.They are bound by rules and laws but they recognize the issue and are trying to work with us," Parker noted."We fully expect positive results."
