Air draft permits up for discussion at two Titan Cement forums Tuesday night

The next step in the Titan Cement saga takes place Tuesday. Carolina Cement, a Titan subsidiary, hopes to open a cement plant in Castle Hayne, but the company has met some strong opposition from local residents. Tuesday, the state will hold two public forums to discuss air draft permits, which will set air quality standards for the new facility. The hearings are at the BB & T Auditorium on the North Campus of Cape Fear Community College. The first forum is from 2:00 until 5:00 p.m. The second runs from 6:30 until 9:00 p.m.

You are the children we had to protect from toys from foriegn countries. Do you really want those same country to furnish the cement that is, I repear is, building your bridges and new Nuclear plants. Well, we will see you on the other side. Good luck


Not really sure what the big ruckus is about Titan. When there has been a nuclear enrichment facillity in Castle Hayne for 40 years( You know who it is.). When there is a open forum for that subject no one ever shows up.

dont poison youre air ????

you might need to worry about the elementis plant in youre back yard ,as you read this they are running a plant built in the 1960"s and storing far worse chemicals than you are fearing, hex chrome ,sulfer dioxide ,sulfuric acid, I bet most people who are worried About titan have no clue what is back there .I would be more concerned about this and other deteriorating plants in the area,such as the sulfuric acid plant on the banks of the cape fear river built in the 60"s. .that only keeps a skeleton crew there just to keep it running but not enough to monitor it for potential problems that might arise. these plants are ticking time bombs
