The Site location was an industrial facility located in the greater South Los Angeles region that manufactured chemicals for local petrochemical and other industrial operations from 1919 through late 1990’s. Refrigerants were initially produced in 1964 including chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) such as trichlorofluoromethane (R-11), dichlorodifluoromethane (R-12), chlorodifluoromethane (R-22), and 1,1-dichloro-1-fluoroethane (R-141b). Raw materials for CFC/HCFC production included hydrofluoric acid, carbon tetrachloride, chloroform, 1,1,1- trichloroethane (1,1,1-TCA), and antimony pentachloride catalyst.
