The existing facility and/or related facilities are authorized to emit the following air contaminants: organic compounds, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, hazardous air pollutants, and particulate matter including particulate matter with diameters of 10 microns or less and 2.5 microns or less.

This application was submitted to the TCEQ on March 21, 2014.

The facility’s compliance file, if any exists, is available for public review in the Beaumont regional office of the TCEQ.

The executive director has determined the application is administratively complete and will conduct a technical review of the application. In addition to the renewal, this permitting action includes the incorporation of the following authorizations or changes to authorized facilities related to this permit: alterations and changes to qualified facilities. The reasons for any changes or incorporations, to the extent they are included in the renewed permit, may include the enhancement of operational control at the plant or enforceability of the permit.
