[THE CYNIC COMMENTS:  WHOA...Someone better pay
attention to this!!!!   Maybe Uncle Vito and Cousin Vinnie the
waste haulers need a place to send their chlorinated solvents to all
of these asphalt plants all around Southern Michigan.

Asphalt plants generally do not have state of the art controls for
products of imcomplete combustion and/or chlorinated di-benzo
dioxin/furan emissions.  And who wrote this "specification" on
waste oil???

Hey maybe those MDEQ "Air Guys" have some temporary amnesia
about what happens when you site toxic emission sources without
state of the art controls like at the Detroit Incinerator in 1984.  It
must be just another case of Russell Harding-induced stress....

Could this be what the Michigan Asphalt Paving Association calls
deregulation???  Send for the MDEQ staff report...should be
interesting reading!!]


This is the CYNIC.....Over and OUT!!
