Dry Cleaners

Organization(s) New Jersey Dept. of Environmental Protection
Project Description Recently the NJ DEP Air Enforcement Program has increased penalty fees assessed to dry cleaners and is strictly enforcing permit limits. The SBAP has been working with New Jersey's dry cleaners to make sure that their air permits accurately depict the operational conditions at their facilities. This outreach activity has resulted in a number of facilities requesting permit modifications to increase perchloroethylene consumption rates. Air Permitting and Air Enforcement are scheduled to discuss how to deal with higher perchloroethylene consumption rates; meanwhile, the SBAP has been encouraging dry cleaners to reduce their perchloroethylene consumption by wet cleaning when appropriate, operating their machines for maximum solvent recovery, and considering alternative dry cleaning solvents.
