Air dispersion modeling reviewed by DAQ shows the facility’s emissions will comply with applicable standards. The permit includes conditions that ensure ambient levels of all pollutants beyond the facility’s fence line comply with emission standards, including applicable health-based standards. The facility will be subject to recordkeeping requirements and regular inspections.
DAQ issued this permit following a public engagement period during which DAQ solicited public comments on a draft of the air permit. The Division advertised the comment period in local media and shared project information in English and Spanish with local governments, health departments, churches and other nearby community organizations. Division staff thoroughly reviewed the comments received on the draft permit during the comment period.
In response to public comment, DAQ’s Air Quality Analysis Branch performed internal air dispersion modeling, which showed Wolfspeed is expected to comply with the one-hour nitrogen dioxide (NO2) National Ambient Air Quality Standard.
