DEP Sets Nov. 16 Hearing On Perdue Soybean Plant VOC Credit Transfers In Lancaster

The Department of Environmental Protection has scheduled a public hearing for November 16 on the proposed transfer of 268 tons per year of volatile organic compound emission credits to the Perdue AgriBusiness soybean processing facility in Conoy Township, Lancaster County.  
The credits would come from two sources: 174 tons generated by a wood furniture surface coating operation at Bush Industries in Middletown, NY and 94 tons from Garden State Tanning in Washington County, Maryland.
DEP said in the notice this action will not increase emissions from the plant.
The hearing is to be held in the Bainbridge Fire Hall, 34 South 2nd Street, Bainbridge from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
Those interested in testifying are asked to contact Brenda Esterline at 717-705-4704 by November 9.  Comments are due on the proposal by November 26. See the formal notice in the PA Bulletin (page 6352) for more details.
