Environmental Update: Exciting Developments are Afoot
FOR RELEASE April 10, 2017—Bullseye Glass Co. completed onsite source emissions testing on March 26-29. Before the end of May, we should learn about the test results and about a decision from the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality on the amount of chromium we will be permitted to use with the new emissions control system, utilizing baghouses.
(Thanks to the new system, we're also back to full production with our red, yellow, and orange glasses.)
In the meantime, 13 new non-chromium greens are in full production right now.
Our development of these new greens was recently featured on Portland's KOIN 6 news. Check out the report Chromium-free glass now made at Bullseye (and be sure to share it with your friends).
We deeply appreciate your continued support, which makes it possible for our small company to continue to make high-quality glass in the United States, without compromising new environmental standards. We look forward to continuing to provide artists with excellent glass and technical support so that they can share their work with the world.
