Concrete batching plants use equipment to produce concrete and concrete products by batching or mixing cements and other materials. Equipment used at a concrete batching plant includes silos, weigh hoppers (batchers), conveyors, mixer engines and auxiliary generators.
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.
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.
Concrete batching plants registered as relocatable facilities are required to complete a Facility Relocation Notification Form and submit it to the appropriate compliance authority each time they relocate to a new site. These relocation notifications can now be done online in the Department’s Business Portal. To access the online process, go to the Business Portal (http://www.fldepportal.com/go/home) and sign in (or register if you’re a new user) from the link in the upper right corner of the page. From the Welcome page, select the Submit option, then select Registration/Notification, and then click on Air General Permit Relocation Notification. Once in the process, just carefully read the instructions on each screen (and under the Help tabs) to complete the relocation notification.
For more information on AGPs or assistance with using AGPERS, please contact DEP’s Small Business Environmental Assistance Program at 1-800-722-7457.
For questions related to compliance procedures such as test notifications, report submittals, record keeping, inspections, etc., please contact the compliance authority specific to the county where your facility is located. If it’s located in Broward, Duval, Hillsborough, Miami-Dade, Orange, Palm Beach, Pinellas or Sarasota counties, visit our Local Program Air Contacts page. For all other counties, go to our District Air Contacts page.
