Group challenges Titan’s air permit

Friday, April 27th, 2012

NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — The Southern Environmental Law Center has filed a legal challenge to the NC Division of Air Quality’s air permit for the proposed cement plant in Castle Hayne.

“By allowing the cement company to emit unnecessary and harmful levels of pollution, the state’s permit for Titan’s pollution fails residents and visitors of North Carolina and violates state and federal law,” said Geoff Gisler, an attorney for SELC.

According to documents filed by the SELC, the state shirked its legal responsibility to protect people from avoidable harm by not requiring the proposed Titan America cement plant in New Hanover County to reduce its pollution to the maximum extent possible.

The SELC filed the challenge on behalf of the N.C. Coastal Federation, Cape Fear River Watch, PenderWatch & Conservancy, and Sierra Club in the Office of Administrative Hearings.
