Ohio EPA Meeting Set for CFF of Avery Dennison
Hearing Scheduled May 30, 2019
Ohio EPA will hold a public meeting to discuss draft permits for existing emission units, that if approved and issued as final, would allow CFF of Avery Dennison to install and operate a new coating line for paper and film products.
An information session will begin at 6 p.m. Thursday, May 30, 2019, at Mentor Public Library, 8215 Mentor Avenue, Mentor, immediately followed by a hearing to accept public comments on the draft permit.
CFF of Avery Dennison is seeking an initial permit-to-install and operate for a paper and film coating line that would include coating stations and natural gas drying ovens at its Mentor facility. The company also is seeking a modified permit to reduce emissions from its existing coating lines.
Ohio EPA will accept written comments on the draft air permits-to-install and operate through June 3. Anyone may submit comments or request to be on the mailing list for information. Written comments may be submitted at the hearing or sent to: Olivia Kinney, C/O Northeast District Office, 2110 E. Aurora Rd, Twinsburg, Ohio 44087, or email email@example.com.
The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency was created in 1972 to consolidate efforts to protect and improve air quality, water quality and waste management in Ohio. Since then, air pollutants dropped by as much as 90 percent; large rivers meeting standards improved from 21 percent to 89 percent; and hundreds of polluting, open dumps were replaced with engineered landfills and an increased emphasis on waste reduction and recycling.
