Document Description
The project proponent is requesting a Conditional Use Permit that would authorize the burning of alternative fuels, including: tire derived fuels, refuse derived fuels and biomass as part of the existing cement operations. Implementation of the project would require minor additions to existing operational equipment currently utilized as part of the existing operations. Less than one acre of new ground disturbance activity is proposed for use exclusively as a result of implementation of the project. The project involves the installation and operation of new equipment at the Lehigh Cement Plant to allow for use of alternative fuels in the heating process necessary to produce cement. The Lehigh Cement Plant has istoricallly used coal and petroleum coke with a small amount of natural gas as its main fuel sources. The use of such alternative fuels is proposed in order to reduce air pollutant and greenhouse gas emissions from the Lehigh Cement Plant, and to allow the facility operator more flexibility in the sourcing of fuels to make cement. The project also includes repurposing of a portion of the existing plant site to allow for parking of tractor-trailers that would serve as fuel storage units. All improvements and operations associated with the proposed project would occur on areas that were previously graded, improved, and/or paved.
