Titan America http://whqr.org en Public Officials Absent from Public Hearing on Titan Cement Plant http://whqr.org/post/public-officials-absent-public-hearing-titan-cement-plant <p>More than 400 people attended a public hearing that the state’s Division of Air Quality, or DAQ, held at UNCW last night. About 70 spoke out about an air permit extension application from cement manufacturer Titan America.&nbsp; If granted, the permit would loosen emission standards for the company’s proposed Castle Hayne cement plant. While about 55 publicly urged the DAQ to deny the permit and 16 others spoke up in support of Titan, the one sentiment both camps share is dismay that zero elected officials attended the hearing.</p> Tue, 06 Aug 2013 18:00:31 +0000 Katie O'Reilly 41018 at http://whqr.org Public Officials Absent from Public Hearing on Titan Cement Plant NHCo.
