More on Titan Cement

from the NC Conservation Network..
POLLUTION SUPERSTAR #2..
"..to power the cement plant, Titan plans to use a mixture of coal, coke and maybe even tires."

from the Sierra Club..
Proposed Cement Kiln on Cape Fear River Basin
"The Northeast Cape Fear River is classified as an aquatic resource of national importance by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The river is mercury impaired on a “monitored basis” which places it on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s list of impaired waters; it is too polluted to support its intended use."

On Friday Sept. 11th... from StopTitan.org..
ACTION ALERT- The Department of Air Quality (DAQ) Issues Titan Draft Air Permit

"Okay people, despite all the calls, emails, and letters to public officials asking them to require Titan Cement to follow the law and undergo a State Environmental Policy Act review before they get any state permit, the Department of Air Quality has ignored citizens’ concerns and will issue Titan a Draft Air Permit today, Friday, September 11."



from Star News Online.. Cape Fear Watchdogs...
Enviro groups want Titan put to SEPA..

"...in 1971 the General Assembly approved the State Environmental Policy Act.
Basically, the law is designed to protect the environment."

"According to SEPA, an environmentally impactful project that uses “public money” should require a state environmental review that, in this case and according to the state, would be covered by the EIS. Since Titan is set to receive $4.5 million in taxpayer money if they build the plant and create enough jobs, the opponents’ logic follows, Titan shouldn’t get any permits until the EIS is done."
