Issuance of Hazardous Waste Management Facility Operating License Renewal License for Petro-Chem Processing Group of Nortru, LLC

Regulatory oversight of the Petro-Chem facility is conducted by the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) and the Great Lakes Water Authority. Petro-Chem is required to comply with state and federal hazardous waste regulations for the management of hazardous waste. Frequent inspections are conducted by EGLE’s hazardous waste program to ensure compliance with these laws. Inspections are also conducted by EGLE’s Air Quality Division. Extensive monitoring of Petro-Chem's discharge to the sewer system is conducted by the Great Lakes Water Authority.

Petro-Chem has been licensed for its hazardous waste storage and treatment activities since 1999. Petro-Chem is one of fourteen hazardous waste treatment storage and disposal facilities across Michigan. Together, these facilities provide treatment, storage, and disposal options to commercial, industrial, and municipal hazardous waste generators. There are approximately 22,500 hazardous waste generators in the Wayne County area. Petro-Chem is one of seven operating treatment, storage, and disposal facilities in the Wayne County area.

EGLE issues operating licenses for the management of hazardous waste in accordance with state and federal law. If the applicant proposes a facility that will meet the requirements of the hazardous waste regulations, EGLE is obligated by law to issue the license. While EGLE must issue a license to a compliant facility, EGLE has some discretion in developing license conditions to add safety measures to protect the community. Where hazardous waste facilities coexist with residential communities, EGLE strives to use that discretion to minimize the impact the facility will have on the quality of life of the residents in the neighboring communities.
