Westinghouse - Bureau of Air Quality

 Air Permit #1900-0050

Westinghouse is permitted to operate a nuclear fuel assembly fabrication facility in compliance with state and federal air quality regulations. Operations include chemical conversion of uranium hexafluoride to uranium dioxide, pellet formation, material recovery operations, and mechanical component manufacturing.  Westinghouse has submitted a request to renew their State Operating Permit. Westinghouse is allowed to continue operating under the conditions of the expired operating permit until such time as the renewal request has been acted upon. Although renewal of this permit does not require a public notice or public comment period, DHEC has agreed to provide both prior to making a final permit decision.
