‘Honey Oil’ lab explosion blows rear wall from kitchen
A home in the 700 block of Vineyard Avenue was damaged by an explosion from a honey oil lab Saturday night, according to the Madera police department. 
Such labs  are illegal, and are used to refine marijuana into THC, or tetrahydricannabinol, the active chemical in marijuana.
The making of honey oil is explosive, due to the use of butane or other solvents to extract the drug.
The 23-year-old resident of the house was alone at the time, and sustained burns to his face and arms. He was taken to an area hospital where he remains as of Monday, according to police. His name is not being released pending the ongoing investigation. No other injuries were reported. 
EMS and firefighters initially thought they were responding to a small kitchen fire, according to Madera police Sgt. Mark Trukki.

Environmental Protection Agency cites Longmont chemical company
The Environmental Protection Agency on Tuesday announced a civil settlement with company that didn't properly report hazardous chemicals stored at its Longmont facility.

A news release from the agency stated that the company, Integrity Applied Science, agreed to pay a $24,335 penalty and comply with requirements to report hazardous chemicals stored at its facility at 10765 Turner Blvd.

The settlement, implemented under the Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act, sprang from complaints from the Weld County Local Emergency Planning Committee and the Mountain View Fire Protection District.

The company is subject to Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act reporting requirements because it stores hazardous chemicals in quantities that surpass regulatory thresholds. It is required to submit an annual inventory to state and local emergency responders.

Wesley Aaron, owner of Integrity Applied Science, said the penalty arose from chemicals stored by a separate company that subleases space from his company. He said the two companies are involved in litigation and he could not comment further.

The Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act was enacted in 1986 to help communities plan for chemical-related emergencies.

US EPA cites Chemours for releases of GenX-related chemicals
The US Environmental Protection Agency has cited Chemours for failing to control emissions of its GenX-related fluoroethers from plants in North Carolina and West Virginia. The EPA move marks the first federal-enforcement action against Chemours since fluoroether pollution from the factories came to public attention in the last two years.
Chemours violated the terms of a 2009 consent order with the agency that allowed the firm to manufacture two of the chemicals, says EPA’s notice of violation, issued Feb. 14 and first reported by NC Policy Watch.
The fluoroethers are part of Chemours’s GenX technology designed to replace the use of persistent, bioaccumulative, and toxic perfluoroocanoic acid as a processing aid in the manufacture of fluoropolymers. The GenX chemicals are considered less toxic and less bioaccumulative than the substance they are replacing.
The agency originally developed the consent order with DuPont, which spun off its fluorochemicals business into Chemours in 2015. With that split, Chemours was legally bound to comply with the 2009 EPA directive.

Twelve University Officials Punished for Deadly Lab Explosion
A Beijing University held 12 senior officials accountable for an explosion at a lab that killed three students in December.
The Beijing Jiaotong University imposed administrative penalties for the accident on officials including the university’s Communist Party chief, president and a vice president. Two people in charge of the lab face criminal charges, according the government-backed newspaper Beijing Daily.
The blast occurred on the morning of Dec. 26 when three graduate students from the university’s urban planning and environmental engineering department were working on a wastewater treatment experiment in a science laboratory. Investigators from the capital government found flaws in safety management of the lab, which was full of flammable materials that exploded upon contact with air, according to the report.

Chemical Explosion Injures One In Redondo Beach
REDONDO BEACH, CA – Authorities are investigating a fire in Redondo Beach that left one person hospitalized Monday afternoon. Crews responded around 2:40 p.m. to a report of a residential fire at 714 S. Pacific Coast Highway, Redondo Beach Fire Department Division Chief Robert Rappaport told the Daily Breeze.

The man inside the unit came out with significant burns after chemicals he used for extracting cannabis oil exploded in the home, according to the Beach Reporter.

"Apparently, he told fire personnel treating him that he was working with butane and was extracting honey oil from marijuana he had inside," Redondo Beach Fire Chief Robert Metzger told the newspaper.

Investigators later found evidence of a butane honey oil explosion, leading to a criminal investigation by fire officials, police and hazardous materials experts, the Daily Breeze reported. More than 30 fire personnel were involved in battling the blaze, and the fire did not spread to other buildings, but some other units were damaged by the smoke. The fire was put out by 3:15 p.m.
