Key findings:
44 toxic chemicals have been used in dozens of instances, often near homes, schools, and hospitals.
In 15,000 instances, companies disclosed chemicals used in their activities; but companies refuse to identify the chemical used in 5000 instances, on the grounds that they were trade secrets.
Known air toxics most frequently used by oil companies in the Los Angeles air basin include crystalline silica, hydrofluoric acid, and formaldehyde.
