McInnis Cement has announced that it is submitting its Port-Daniel-Gascons project to additional environmental conditions. An abridged version of its statement on the latest developments is provided below.
McInnis Cement said today that it welcomes the Quebec government’s decision for the introduction of draft legislation confirming that its cement plant project is not subject to the environmental assessment process, recognising the prior thirty confirmations issued by governments between 1995 and 2014. The company is confident that Bill 37 will dispel the uncertainty surrounding the project and will help in maintaining jobs.
At the request of McInnis Cement, additional conditions will be formally added to its Certificate of Authorisation to operate the cement plant, including:
- Continuous monitoring of the air emissions from the cement plant.
- Compliance with standards more stringent than those currently applied in Quebec to existing cement plants, namely the American standard NESHAP 2015 for new cement.
