The Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control’s Coastal Zone Act Program has issued a standard Coastal Zone permit (Project CZA-441P) to FujiFilm Imaging Colorants, Inc. (“FujiFilm”). FujiFilm submitted a permit application on March 24, 2021, which was deemed administratively complete on April 28, 2021, to construct and operate a new manufacturing plant to produce high-performance aqueous pigment dispersions at its facility at 233 Cherry Lane, New Castle, DE 19720. A virtual public hearing was held on May 26, 2021. FujiFilm will more than offset air emissions resulting from this project through the purchase of 3 emission reduction credits from the Delaware Division of Small Business and the elimination of 5 existing propane-operated forklifts onsite.
Anyone wishing to appeal this decision to the State Coastal Zone Industrial Control Board must do so by August 15, 2021. An appeal form may be acquired by calling Sascha Mohammed at (302) 739-9000. There is a $100 application fee. If no appeal is received within the appeal period, this decision becomes final.
