The maximum amount of tires that can be gasified daily at the waste-to-energy facility at Hidden Hollow landfill is about 6 tons, according to Dynamis and DEQ officials.
DEQ confirmed Tuesday the air quality permit application it is processing for the Dynamis project is for a maximum of 408 tons of waste to be gasified daily. Of that, no more than 1.5 percent 12,240 pounds can be tires.
In its initial application, Dynamis stated it would process no more than 1.5 percent of tires daily.
On June 11, the company submitted additional documents to DEQ stating the facility could gasify daily a maximum of 15 percent tires.
DEQ officials said Tuesday, Dynamis has since corrected that information to 1.5 percent.
On Monday, DEQ deemed Dynamis air quality permit application complete, which means DEQ will now start reviewing the garbage gasification project to determine if it complies with state and federal air quality standards.
DEQ has up to 60 days to conduct the review and issue a draft permit. Once a draft permit is issued, the public will have 30 days to comment on it.
On Thursday, elected officials from Ada County and its cities will meet to discuss the Dynamis project. The meeting starts at 3:30 p.m. in the main floor hearing room of the Ada County Courthouse, 200 W. Front St.
