Animal Crematories

An animal crematory is a facility containing one or more combustion units, known as cremators, used solely for the cremation of dead animals within appropriate containers. Cremators are usually made of high-grade steel plate and lined inside with heavy refractory tile or brick. Most cremators have a variety of automatic controls and use gas for heating the cremator.

Animal crematories are eligible to operate in Florida under the terms of an air general permit (AGP) pursuant to the requirements of 62-210.310(5)(d), Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.).

An AGP is an authorization by rule to construct or operate a specific type of air pollutant emitting facility. Use of such authorization by any individual facility does not require action by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP). The terms and conditions of an AGP are set forth in the rule, rather than in a separately issued air construction or air operation permit.

Registration

You can register, renew, change ownership or make administrative corrections to AGPs online.

If you do not wish to use AGPERS, you can optionally download and complete the following worksheet and mail it to DEP at the address indicated in the worksheet instructions along with the $100 processing fee.
