From the article:

SunCoke estimates that it will take about 500 construction workers to build the Coke facility. Construction will take 15-18 months to complete.

SunCoke Community Advisory Panel CAP


Suncoke is in the process of contacting homeowners around the Middletown SunCoke plant site to form a community advisory panel.

Sunoco, parent company of SunCoke, has formed groups made up of community leaders, residents and a company employee to serve as a “two-way form of communication” on what is happening at the plant and to discuss community concerns.

Interviews and recommendations for the panel will continue throughout April and May with its first meeting planned for June.

A Community Advisory Panel (CAP) is a body that serves as a forum for ongoing dialogue between business and the neighboring community to identify local concerns and discuss possible solutions by:

Ensuring that the community has complete and understandable information regarding facility operations, including environmental, health and safety issues and performance;

Providing a two-way communication channel between the company and the community;
Encouraging active involvement by the company in issues and activities important to the community;
Identifying public concerns regarding local business plans and activities; and
Assisting in the development of responses to public concerns.

Here are com CAPs in place now:
Eagle Point Refinery

Haverhill Plant CAP

The Haverhill (OH) Plant Community Advisory Panel is a joint effort between Sunoco and DuPont. The CAP consists of about twenty members and includes nearby residents, representatives from adjacent businesses, local emergency management agency officials, health care professionals, educators, high school students, and retirees. Additionally, twice a year the Haverhill CAP has a joint session with DOW Chemical CAP. The Haverhill plant manager, HES manager and HR manager represent Sunoco at the CAP and make presentations regarding plant operations and HES performance.

The Haverhill plant manager and environmental manager represent Sunoco at all CAP meetings and functions. CAP members developed an educational shelter-in-place program consisting of a video and handouts, which is presented to local governments, schools, area fire departments and at county fairs.

The problem with these panels is that you need to (or should) get folks that want to work together to solve problems that come up.
I can see the meetings being shouting matches where little gets done and both sides put up barriers to each other.

Now, hopefully they'll prove me wrong.

The New Source Review air permit SunCoke received from the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency in February requires it to purchase of an extensive network of air monitors, including two particulate PM 10 monitors, four PM 2.5 monitors, one sulfur dioxide monitor and two Volatile Organic Compound monitors.

The monitors will be split between the two locations, with the sulfur dioxide monitor being placed at Amanda, said Dina Pierce, Ohio EPA spokeswoman.

Monitors will likely be placed on the roof of Amanda and fenced in on the ground at Yankee Properties. HCDOES wants to place the monitors by fall, but is required to have them sited six months before the plant is operational, said Anna Kelley of Hamilton County.

The monitors are HIGHLY misleading. Statements at the public hearing and the permit allow for their operation 1 in 6 days, on a schedule that SunCoke is aware of.

The air monitors are useless. They haven't changed a think in Haverhill and they have pretty much always been in violation. They were in violation for nearly all of 2009, and nothing has changed. The EPA isn't out to protect you.

I'm a hillbilly. I call anything with four articulating wheels and a couple of forks a LULL. Just like anything that I can control from a basket thirty feet in the air a JLG.

John, you should have taken your picture north of the old farm house. They have installed the new underground conduit for electrical service and leveled the old parking lot to put in the foundation for the new office or parking area. Not sure which. They have also moved a lot of earth towards the back of the site and have been leveling off the area where the new ovens will sit. They have been working consistantly for the past couple of weeks.
