OEPA issues SunCoke New Source Review permit on February 9, 2010

Despite verified unresolved Notices of Violation, which still exist with SunCoke's Haverhill North Coke Company, the Ohio EPA issued the New Source Review permit stating that this new NSR permit will supercede the previous permit issued in November, 2008.

..."both the governor and Chris Korleski, director of the Ohio EPA, said they believe monitoring at the local facility will protect against similar issues and the state will enforce compliance requirements."

The question still remains...why should we expect any different behavior in Butler County when SunCoke is considered a "high priority violator" by the USEPA?
