The N.C. Department of Environmental Quality’s Division of Air Quality plans to hold new public comment periods and public hearings to enable feedback for two facilities seeking air quality permits in the Wilmington area. The new public comment periods for both draft permits are a response to heightened public interest in the permits.
New comment periods for permits for the two facilities (Tima Capital Inc. and Malec Brothers Transport LLC) will begin in the next two weeks that will clearly state where people can send their comments. Public hearings for each facility’s draft permit to enable people to provide additional feedback on the permits. The times and dates of the hearings will be announced soon.
The two permit requests:
Tima Capital Inc., a fumigation facility in Wilmington, is requesting to modify its air quality permit to enable a change in owners from Royal Pest Solutions to Tima Capital Inc. and increase its use of the fumigant methyl bromide.
