Air quality notice of construction application – Opportunity to request a public comment period

July 1, 2024, 12 a.m. - July 18, 2024, 11:59 p.m.

We propose to approve Group14 Technologies' air quality notice of construction (NOC) application. We will hold a public comment period if one is requested.

Group14 Technologies submitted a notice of construction application for their factory to:

  • Add:
    • two emergency generators (an increase from three to five)
    • two dust collectors
    • two enclosed ground flares
  • Increase natural gas use for the gas abatement system (emissions control)

The factory manufactures and produces components for lithium batteries located on Wheeler Road, in Moses Lake.

Documents for review

We determined this proposal satisfies the requirements of Chapter 173-400 WAC. We plan to approve the application. We will hold a public comment period on a draft air permit ("approval order") that includes this change if we receive a written request by July 18, 2024.

To request a public comment period, use one of the ways listed below.

To find out if there are more records for this project, contact our Public Records Office.

Background

A notice of construction permit is required before installing a new source of air pollution or modifying an existing source of air pollution. This permit is sometimes called a "pre-construction permit" because a business must have one before starting construction or operating their business.

A notice of construction air permit limits the amount of air pollutants a business can emit.
