Notice is given to the public, according to Chapter 14 of Nebraska Administrative Code Title 129 - Nebraska Air Quality Regulations, that the Department is proposing to issue a construction permit to Lincoln Premium Poultry, LLC (FID# 76680) for a chicken hatchery (SIC Code 0254) located at 1015 East Cloverly, a poultry processing plant (SIC Code 2015) located at 1325 East Cloverly, and an animal feed mill (SIC Code 2048) located at 2045 South Downing, Fremont, Dodge County, Nebraska. The anticipated change in non-fugitive emissions of regulated air contaminants in tons per year (tpy) due to the proposed construction of these facilities will be: 102.94 tpy of Particulate Matter (PM); 56.70 tpy of PM ≤ 10 microns (PM10); 28.40 tpy PM ≤ 2.5 microns (PM2.5); 231.52 tpy Volatile Organic Compounds; 0.35 tpy of Sulfur Dioxide (SO2); 34.19 tpy of Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx); 41.19 tpy Carbon Monoxide (CO); 8.84 tpy Hydrochloric Acid (HCl); and 21.27 tpy Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs).
