Lafarge seeks approval for tyre burning plans

Lafarge seeks approval for tyre burning plans
17 November 2017

Lafarge Canada has applied for industrial approval regarding its plans to burn tyres as an alternative fuel for its Brookfield cement plant.

After the successful completion of an environmental examination in July, the project also requires an industrial study from the Department of Environment. The approval will only come once the plant’s environmental impact has been fully examined.

Lafarge’s plans have previously encountered resistance in the form of petitions to the government to ban the incineration of tyres. 

The Department of Environment will have 60 days to make a decision on whether it will provide industrial approval.
