On Oct. 13, 2023, Green America Recycling LLC submitted a Class 2 Permit modification request to the department, requesting to modify its hazardous waste permits. Green America is proposing to add piping to direct liquid alternative waste fuels from the tank farm to the kiln for energy recovery. This will be in addition to the current piping from the tank farm to the calciner. The department is accepting written comments on the permit modification request until Dec. 17, 2023. Green America will hold a public meeting about the permit modification request on Nov. 8, 2023. Follow the links below to review the permit modification request or for more information about the public meeting.
The Green America facility currently is operating under a department-issued Missouri Hazardous Waste Management Facility Part I Permit and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-issued Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments Part II Permit. Currently, the Green America facility feeds alternative liquid fuels from the tank farm to the calciner only. Green America is requesting to modify the main burner and install new piping and the addition of vales and flanges from the tank farm directly to the main kiln burner. These changes would provide improved management, more safe and environmental practice.
