Swissvale-based Kopp Glass has appealed an enforcement order issued by the Allegheny County Health Department July 27 requiring it to submit a plan to comply with federal air quality regulations, specifically the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Glass Manufacturing Area Sources. The company was also ordered to submit a Title V Permit application to the ACHD.
In the Aug. 26 appeal, Kopp Glass argues that it is not subject to those air quality standards.
The appeal comes in the wake of an Aug. 6 announcement by ACHD that it would be conducting an air toxics monitoring project near the glass manufacturing facility.
