Cement plant expected to get approval to burn tires for cement plant fuel
Mar, 22 2012
(PUEBLO, Colo.) -- A plan to burn old tires for fuel at a Pueblo cement plant is nearing final approval.
State air pollution regulators have issued a draft permit for GCC Rio Grande's proposal. The plant would use old tires piled up at the Midtown tire dump south of Fountain.
According to the Pueblo Chieftain, the state will hold a 30-day public comment period before issuing a final permit.
In a split vote Tuesday, the Winona County Board, Minnesota, decided to ask state regulators to require in-depth environmental impact statements for frac sand mines over 40 acres. More
