Update On Closing Down Norlite Hazardous Waste Incinerator

Todd Ommen is the Director of the PACE Environmental Litigation Clinic, which is representing Lights Out Norlite in its legal efforts to shut down the Norlite hazardous waste incinerator and aggregate production facility in Cohoes. He provides an update on DEC’s efforts to amend Norlite’s permit to treat the fly ash from the plant as hazardous waste. Norlite recently – at least temporarily – has shut down and laid off workers.
