DEC requires new documentation and public comment period on proposed Endicott facility

ENDICOTT (WBNG) - After approving a permit for a battery recycling facility in Endicott in March, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation now wants additional information and a chance for the public to weigh in.

In a letter to SungEel MCC America in regards to its proposed lithium ion battery recycling facility, NYSDEC says a modified permit is now required to move forward after the state recently became aware that some lithium ion batteries contain poly fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS.)

The full letter can be read below:

SungEel MCC recently submitted a statement to the NYSDEC saying: "Our first concern will always be the safety of current and future Endicott residents, and we will remain transparent by continuing to share information and respond to your concerns."
