State Department of Environmental Protecton To Hold Public Hearing

The Department of Environmental Protection will be holding a public meeting on Tuesday September 23rd in Robinson Township to discuss the proposal by Reaxis Inc. to build a new reactor. Reaxis wants to build a 3,200-gallon fiberglass reactor that would emit 260 pounds of hydrogen chloride over a 12 month period. Similar power plants can emit 20,000 pounds of the same gas over the same period. The proposed plant would cut down on emissions by using an associated scrubber to clean the reactor. The public hearing is the final part of the process for Reaxis to have the plant approved by the DEP.
