Activists file new appeal against Titan Cement

Environmental activists are taking another stand against a cement plant coming to Wilmington, NC.

The Southern Environmental Law Center Monday appealed a court decision that environmental groups say muzzles residents from challenging state-issued air permits.

Titan America wants to build a cement plant in Castle Hayne, but the controversial project has been challenged from the outset by some residents and environmental groups. That includes legal skirmishes in the courts against the state’s issuance in 2011 of an air quality permit to Titan – through its Carolinas Cement subsidiary – for the proposed cement plant, which would be built on the banks of the Northeast Cape Fear River.

“The Clean Air Act and state law stand for a simple premise – the people who would breathe a company’s polluted air have the right to ensure laws designed to protect their health were followed,” said Geoff Gisler, an attorney for the law center, in a release.

Monday’s filing by the law center was done on behalf of the N.C. Coastal Federation, Cape Fear River Watch, PenderWatch & Conservancy, and the NC chapter of the Sierra Club.
