PolyMet Submits Application to MPCA for Air Permit
The information contained in the documents helps the MPCA determin which state and federal requirements apply
On August 24, PolyMet submitted an air permit application to the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) for its proposed NorthMet project in northeastern Minnesota.
Air quality permit applications include a description of, equipment at the facility that will generate air pollutants, pollution control equipment that will be used to reduce emissions, type and quantity of air pollutants that will be emitted, and potential air quality impacts near the facility.
This permit is a large step for PolyMet for building and operating the state’s first copper-nickel-precious metals mine and bringing hundreds of new jobs to northeast Minnesota.
The MPCA will review the application, and PolyMet plans to then prepare to submit their Permit to Mine.
