Air General Permits - Nonmetallic Mineral Processing Plants

Nonmetallic mineral processing plants are commonly referred to as rock crushers. These plants use equipment to crush or grind any nonmetallic mineral wherever located, including lime plants, power plants, steel mills, asphalt concrete plants, Portland cement plants or any other facility processing nonmetallic minerals.

Examples of nonmetallic minerals are concrete, recycled asphalt pavement, common clay, sand, shell, gravel, and crushed or broken stone, including limestone, dolomite, trap rock, sandstone, quartz, quartzite, slate, shale, or oil-shale.

Nonmetallic mineral processing plant equipment includes crushers, grinding mills, belt conveyors, bucket elevators, screening operations, bagging operations, storage bins, enclosed truck or railcar loading stations, crusher engines, and auxiliary generators.

A nonmetallic mineral processing plant may be eligible to operate as an air emissions source in Florida under the terms and conditions of an Air General Permit.

An optional Nonmetallic Mineral Processing Plant Air General Permit Example Worksheet [Fill-able PDF - 99 kb] is available. Nonmetallic mineral processing plants are eligible to operate in Florida under the terms of an air general permit pursuant to the requirements of the applicable  Florida Rule 62-210.310(5)(e) F.A.C.

Please send your air general permit registration and the $100.00 processing fee payable to FDEP:
