The State

Residents of Martinez and Greenpeace activists have launched an offensive against a company’s plan to operate a commercial hazardous waste incinerator. Stauffer Chemical Co. has applied to the city, the state Department of Health Services and the Environmental Protection Agency to use its present facility to recycle toxic waste. Stauffer’s business involves accepting spent sulfuric acid, recycling it into clean sulfuric acid and selling it back to the original users.
