The Environment Agency has opened the final stage of public consultation on Castle Cement’s application to build a new cement kiln in North Wales. The new £54m kiln, located in Padeswood, will increase production by 50 per cent at the site, and proposals include the burning of waste-derived fuels such as tyres and solvents.
According to the Agency, it is “… seeking to explain to people how the concerns raised during earlier stages of the consultation have been taken into account. We also want to ensure that all the issues relevant to the public have been raised and allow any new issues to be raised before the determination process is finalised.”
The construction of the kiln should be finished by 2005 if all goes according to schedule.
