SC battery recycling plant gets OK on air permits

Aug 3, 2010 2:25:00 PM - thestate.com
A Wisconsin-based battery maker and several environmental groups say they have reached a consensus on emissions from its battery recycling plant in South Carolina.

Johnson Controls Inc. said in a news release on Tuesday that it worked with the Coastal Conservation League and the League of Women Voters of South Carolina to create the standards for its proposed plant near Florence.

The company makes lead-acid batteries for the automotive industry and announced plans for the $150 million South Carolina facility in 2009.

The environmental groups had appealed air permits issued by South Carolina regulators in February. Spokeswoman for the environmental groups say the company agreed to lower emissions and more monitoring.
