Ellsin Environmental Ltd. Sault Ste. Marie tire waste thermal treatment facility
Regulation - LGIC
Bill or Act:
Environmental Assessment Act
Summary of Decision:
A regulation has been made allowing Ellsin Environmental to increase the quantity of tires they can thermally treat daily without carrying out additional EA work, given the extensive EA work already completed and the various other MECP approvals required for the project which ensure environmental protections are maintained.
Analysis of Regulatory Impact:
There will be no regulatory impact.
The proposed regulation will only exempt the proposal to increase the tire waste treatment rate from 10 tonnes per day to 20 tonnes per day at Ellsin's Sault Ste. Marie facility.
The Environmental Assessment Act requirements remain the same for waste management projects according to the Waste Management Projects Regulation.
