Proposal details

This proposal is for an Environmental Compliance Approval with Limited Operational Flexibility (air), which replaces all the current Environmental Compliance Approvals for air at this facility, and includes the addition of new, or historically unapproved, sources for all emissions from Char Biocarbon Inc., a facility producing renewable natural gas and biochar, located in the City of Thorold, Ontario.

The proposal includes all sources at the facility, including:

  • kilns
  • dust collectors

Emissions to the air from this facility include:

  • nitrogen oxides
  • carbon dioxide
  • particulate matter

The Environmental Compliance Approval with Limited Operational Flexibility (air), when issued, permits modifications to the facility subject to limits on operational flexibility that include a production limit for the facility to be specified on the Environmental Compliance Approval with Limited Operational Flexibility (air).

The limited operational flexibility conditions have an expiry date. The company will be required to make an application for amendment at that time to renew these conditions.
