Genentech

DEQ received an application for a new air quality permit from Genentech Inc. on June 18, 2019. The permit would replace Genentech Inc.’s existing air quality permit. The company applied for a new permit application because they have constructed two new pharmaceutical manufacturing buildings.
 
As part of the Cleaner Air Oregon process, DEQ required Genentech to conduct a risk assessment to evaluate health impacts from the facility. DEQ created Cleaner Air Oregon facility web pages as part of an ongoing commitment to communities to be transparent and provide access to a facility’s health risk assessment information. Facility correspondence and deliverables are provided below.
