As reported in The Daily Mail, the DEC accepted our Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS).
This is a significant step in the modernization process that brings the proposed project closer to final approval.
The new regulatory documents – as well as past documents – can be accessed by clicking here or using the blue button at the top of the home page.
You can also view the FEIS table of contents and executive summary in the window below:
The Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) held its public comment meeting last week at the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk High School. The meeting provided the community with an opportunity to officially comment on the draft permits and DEIS for our proposed Ravena Plant Modernizaton project. We appreciated the strong support and advice from the community to further improve our project.
I made a few remarks and thanked the community for all of their interest, support and input in our project over the past two years.
Approximately 70 people attended the meeting.
Members of the audience took turns going up to the mic to share their comments with the DEC.
Along with members of the community, a number of elected officials and business leaders also attended to offer their strong support for the modernization project.
The DEC will continue to accept comment letters from the public until February 22. Click here to send your letter of support today.
We thought it might be helpful to post that presentation here for easy viewing and downloading.
Also, the DEC agreed to let us post their presentation from the meeting.
You can continue to access both of these presentations using the DEC’s public information meeting link found in the navigation bar on the left side of this page.
The DEC’s presentation came in two parts. One on the regulatory process and the other on the air permit. We combined them here for easier access.
If you have any questions about Lafarge Ravena’s presentation, please contact us at email@example.com.
Don’t forget, the DEC is holding its information session about our proposed Ravena Plant Modernization Project tonight.
It will begin at 6 p.m. at the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk High School auditorium and will be a great opportunity to ask questions and learn more about the proposed modernization.
See you there!
The modernization project hit a big milestone.
The DEC publicly released the Notice of Completion Application for Lafarge’s Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS). This is a key step in the approval process for our proposed modernization project.
Once modernized, our new plant will be equipped with state-of-the-art air pollution control technology that will improve air quality and continuous monitoring systems to ensure compliance with stringent emission limits. The new dry kiln technology we propose to install will also reduce fuel use, produce less solid waste, use less water from the Hudson River, and allow for zero wastewater discharges, making the new facility even more efficient.
The DEC also announced dates for the public information session for our proposed plant modernization project (December 8, 2010), and public comment hearing (January 21, 2011).
Our website is currently hosting the modernization project DEIS and draft permits for viewing and download by the public.
