Notice of Public Meeting on a Title V Operating Permit

The Louisville Metro Air Pollution Control District (District) is holding a public meeting starting at 6 p.m. on January 18, 2023, to discuss the proposed renewal of a Title V operating permit for Clariant Corporation (Louisville South Plant) (catalyst manufacturer), 4900 Crittenden Drive.
