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 Pro- and anti-Titan activists mobilizing supporters for public hearing on air quality permit http://whqr.org/post/pro-and-anti-titan-activists-mobilizing-supporters-public-hearing-air-quality-permit <p></p><p>Supporters of a Titan Cement plant and Stop Titan activists are mobilizing their troops to speak out at a public hearing Monday night.&nbsp;</p><p> Fri, 02 Aug 2013 19:14:36 +0000 Rachel Lewis Hilburn 40822 at http://whqr.org Pro- and anti-Titan activists mobilizing supporters for public hearing on air quality permit Opposing Sides Weigh in on Titan America Study http://whqr.org/post/opposing-sides-weigh-titan-america-study <p>The Southern Environmental Law Center presented a study in Wilmington last week by ICF International about the potential health risks of air emissions by Titan America’s proposed cement plant in Castle Hayne.</p> Wed, 01 Feb 2012 22:59:34 +0000 Michelle Bliss 10935 at http://whqr.org Opposing Sides Weigh in on Titan America Study Study Released on Titan America's Potential Health and Air Impacts http://whqr.org/post/study-released-titan-americas-potential-health-and-air-impacts <p>Three years after announcing its plans to operate a cement plant in Castle Hayne, Titan America is still waiting to hear a final decision regarding an air permit from the state Division of Air Quality.</p><p> Tue, 24 Jan 2012 17:29:22 +0000 Michelle Bliss 10568 at http://whqr.org Study Released on Titan America's Potential Health and Air Impacts
