A new report finds that advanced, or chemical, recycling facilities produce emissions on par with or lower than those from other common facilities such as hospitals, colleges, food processing and auto makers, according to an article from Recycling Today. Eugene, Oregon-based sustainability firm Good Company prepared the report for the American Chemistry Council.

The Good Company report states that emissions from these recycling facilities are regulated by federal, state and local agencies and are likely to be below most permitting thresholds. The levels of hazardous air pollutants (HAPS) produced were also well below Environmental Protection Agency permitting requirements, according to the article.
