Resin and Synthetic Rubber Manufacturing Sector - Isoprene
Response to Comments
Response to Stakeholder's Comments on the Working Document for Discussion on the Content of the Proposed Pollution Prevention Planning Notice for the Resion and Synthetic Rubber Manufacturing Sector
Plastics and Rubber Section
Chemical Production Division
Isoprene (1,3 Butadiene, 2-Methyl-) was found to meet one or more of the criteria set out in section 64 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA 1999) on January 31, 2009. Under the Act, a proposed Risk Management Instrument must be published in the Canada Gazette, Part I by January 29, 2011.
Environment Canada is developing a sector-based Pollution Prevention (P2) Planning Notice for the Resin and Synthetic Rubber Manufacturing Sector. While currently this proposed Notice would only address releases of isoprene (CAS RN 78-79-5)1 to air from the resin and synthetic rubber manufacturing sector, in the future, Environment Canada may amend the Notice to add other substances related to that sector.
A working document containing the elements of the proposed Notice was drafted and distributed via email for comments to all interested and affected stakeholders from the industry, non-governmental organizations and aboriginal groups. The consultations on the Working Document for Discussion on the Content of the Proposed P2 Planning Notice for the Resin and Synthetic Rubber Manufacturing Sector occurred from August 24, 2010 to September 20, 2010.
This document outlines the various comments received from stakeholders on the Working Document, and how they have been considered and addressed during the development of the Proposed P2 Planning Notice.
The comments received are presented in four parts: Part I includes comments on the overall approach, Part II includes comments on the content of the core part of the Working Document, Part III includes comments on the content of the substance-specific part of the Working Document, and Part IV includes comments on the Schedules. The comments are further organized by issues according to their nature and to the section of the Working Document to which the comment is related.
All comments received were taken into account and, where appropriate, modifications have been reflected in the Proposed P2 Planning Notice published in the Canada Gazette, Part I, on January 1, 2011. The Proposed P2 Planning Notice published in the Canada Gazette, Part I, initiates the formal 60-day consultation period. Comments received during this public comment period will be considered during the development of the Final Notice.
