Ash Grove Cement Company, Civil Action No. 2:13–cv–02299–JTM–DJW. The proposed consent decree, if approved by the Court, would require Ash Grove Cement Company (‘‘Ash Grove’’) to achieve substantial reductions of nitrogen oxides (‘‘NOX’’), sulfur dioxide (‘‘SO2’’), and particulate matter (‘‘PM’’) at its nine cement manufacturing plants operating in as many states. The states of Arkansas, Idaho, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, Oregon, Utah, Washington and the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency are parties to the proposed Decree. To reduce NOX emissions, the proposed Decree would require Ash Grove to install new, modern pollution controls on nine of the kilns; shut down two old, inefficient kilns; optimize the operation of two relatively small, older kilns; and meet stringent NOX emission limits. The Decree would also require Ash Grove to meet stringent emission limits to reduce SO2 emissions and would require modern pollution controls to reduce PM emissions at all eleven kilns that will continue to operate. Finally, the Decree would require Ash Grove to pay $2.5 million in civil penalties and to perform additional projects to replace diesel truck engines with modern, more efficient engines at its plants located in Arkansas, Kansas, and Texas. These truck engine replacements will further reduce NOX, PM, and ozone emissions.
