Posted 06/26/09





SACRAMENTO, CA-06/24/09 - The California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) and the Chemical Industry Council of California (CICC) today recognized the efforts of two companies that have voluntarily helped to prevent chemical waste and pollution in California. Ampac Fine Chemicals, based in Rancho Cordova, and Potters Industries, a subsidiary of PQ Corporation of South Gate (Los Angeles County) received recognition awards today at a special ceremony at the Cal/EPA headquarters. The awards were part of the DTSC & CICC sponsored Chemical Industry Pollution Prevention (P2) Challenge Program"
