A coal-fired power plant is being planned to be built on the Texas coast, for which an air permit had been granted to the developers, a recent report has found. While a court judge has rejected the same over pollution issues, the developers are thinking of challenging the ruling.
Though, the Texas Commission of Environmental Quality has been claiming that the permit for the Corpus Christi plant is completely safe and protective. Stephen Yelenosky, who is the State District Judge, went in favour of those environmental groups that raised concerns over the same.
As per the findings, the court had declared the permit as offensive as it allows the agency to use models so as to prove that national air quality standards are being completely met and the same when they were actually not. Since, the groups meant for environmental protection had asked the same.
But, Chase Power Development based in Houston is planning to appeal the order by the judge as they believe that an additional review of the license may clear the doubts, thereby causing no hindrance in the development of the Las Brisas power plant.
"The decision is taken as a mixed bag. We won on some issues and lost on some issues", said CEO Dave Freysinger.
