If you live within 25 miles of Intel’s Hillsboro facility seen the picture above or their Aloha chip-making plant you’ll want to come to this hearing. Intel is asking permission from the Department of Environmental Quality to emit the following toxics: 6.4 tons of fluorides, 39 tons sulfur dioxide, 229 tons carbon monoxide, 197 tons nitrogen oxides - as well as especially hazardous compounds like 9 tons of hydrogen fluoride, 9 tons hexane, 4 tons bromoform, 2.5 tons chlorine, 2 tons hydrogen cyanide, and 1.5 tons of methanol.

Intel is also requesting DEQ allow them to increase their CO2 emissions by 260% to 819,000 tons annually. That’s roughly 1.5 tons per minute! At 819,000 tons of CO2 Intel would become the 5th worst greenhouse gas emitter in the State.
