Algoma has applied for an amendment to its existing SSS for benzene, benzo(a)pyrene, and particulate matter. Algoma has also requested a new SSS for sulphur dioxide (SO2) due to the new Ontario Regulation 419/05 standards for SO2 that will come into effect in July 2023.
Community engagement is an important part of the SSS application process. Algoma Steel hosted a Community Open House on February 28, 2022, where we solicited feedback which was subsequently included in our application. The Ministry of Environment, Conservation and Parks will be posting Algoma’s application on the EBR website for further community feedback.
To support further understanding and awareness of Algoma’s application, we have prepared the following summary documents regarding our operations and planned emission reduction initiatives.
