ENVOTECH FILES AIR & STORM WATER MANAGEMENT PERMITS, NOTICES FOR ENVOTECH RESOURCE CENTER

 ENVOTECH FILES AIR & STORM WATER MANAGEMENT PERMITS, NOTICES
 FOR ENVOTECH RESOURCE CENTER
 YPSILANTI, Mich., April 9 /PRNewswire/ -- ENVOTECH Limited Partnership, part of a related group of Michigan-based environmental- protection firms, today filed a Michigan Air Pollution Act (PA 348) permit application, two National Pollutant Discharge Elimination Systems (NPDES) permit applications and the 30-day notices of intent to file for Michigan Hazardous Waste Management Act (Act 64) construction permits for the Envotech Resource Center (ERC).
 The actions are all part of the required ERC permitting process. The ERC is an environmental-protection facility with a hazardous-waste landfill and incinerator to be built in Augusta Township (Washtenaw County).
 "Michigan needs to protect its environment by ensuring it can safely manage the hazardous waste produced every day by people and businesses in Michigan," Walter W. Tomyn, president of ENVOTECH Limited Partnership, said.
 Michigan generates 750,000 cubic yards of hazardous waste every year, nearly enough to fill two Joe Louis Arenas to the ceiling.
 Michigan's only commercially available hazardous-waste landfill (Wayne Disposal, Inc.'s landfill in Van Buren Township) will be filled by the end of 1994.
 "The Envotech Resource Center provides a plan to help meet the environmental-protection needs of Michigan for decades to come," Tomyn said.
 "This application package and the ones we will be filing in the near future represent more than five years of research, planning and design by our own scientists and some of the nation's top environmental experts," Tomyn added.
 Michigan law (Act 64) provides a highly detailed public examination process for the issuing of construction permits for hazardous-waste environmental-protection facilities.
 Act 64 requires companies submitting construction-permit applications to publish a 30-day advance notice for each permit application it plans to file. The notices for the ERC landfill and incinerator-construction permit applications are being published in area newspapers, as specified by the Act.
 ACT 348 AIR PERMIT
 The Act 348 air-permit application was submitted to the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (MDNR) Air Quality Division. The permit will support the construction and operation of an advanced technology multi-stage hazardous-waste incinerator.
 According to Tomyn, the incinerator safely reduces the volume of waste by as much as 90 percent and makes what is left over easier to manage.
 "The remaining ash goes into the landfill where it occupies only a fraction of the space that would have been required before incineration," Tomyn said.
 NPDES PERMIT
 The NPDES permits for both the landfill and incinerator portions of the ERC are for proper management and discharge of storm water during both construction and operation.
 Storm water collected during construction will be processed through sedimentation basins to be constructed on the site. This is similar to erosion protection used at residential, commercial and other industrial construction sites.
 Storm-water runoff from areas not part of the active waste- management areas at the landfill and incinerator will pass through the sedimentation basins. It will be discharged into surrounding county drains. This is similar to other storm-water management commonly used at construction sites.
 Storm water which falls within the active area of the operating landfill, roadways, incinerator complex and active waste-handling areas receives additional special treatment. They will be collected, stored, treated and properly disposed either off-site or in deepwells nearly one mile below the earth's surface.
 ENVOTECH and the related companies, with their extensive experience and expertise, provide comprehensive environmental-protection technologies and services utilizing the abilities of chemists, engineers, sanitarians, biologists, industrial hygienists, horticulturists and other environmental-protection specialists.
