Lafarge Ravena fly ash ban reviewed

Lafarge Ravena fly ash ban reviewed
Published: 02 May 2011

The proposal to ban Lafarge’s use of mercury-tainted coal fly ash at the Ravena cement plant will be reviewed.

This development follows a change in the structure of the local administration and the transfer of regulatory issues overseen by the state Department of Environmental Conservation to the Governor’s Office and the Budget Division.

Lafarge uses between 30,000 and 60,000t fly ash each year at its Route 9W plant in Ravena, according to a report in Times Union, Albany.
