USA: environmental groups push for more details about proposed cement plant
Published: 16 February 2010

Environmental groups across the area are pushing for more information about the proposed Titan cement plant in New Hanover County.

According to the News and Observer in Raleigh, attorneys representing the groups want the state to press Titan for more details.

They want to learn more about any potential impact the cement operation would have on plants and soil. 

Additionally, they want to prove to the state it can comply with tougher federal pollution limits.

Cape Fear Riverwatch, Pender Nature and Conservancy, and the Coastal Federation are the groups involved.

Titan is working toward getting the air and water permits needed to open the plant.
