Open Burning

What is “Open Burning”?

Open burning means the burning of materials in such a manner that smoke (the product of combustion) is released directly into the air without going through a stack or chimney. Open burning includes activities such as pile burning, prescribed fire burning, and burning using an Air Curtain Incinerator (ACI). 

Information regarding the type of materials that can be open burned, restrictions on how/when/where it can be burned, and the types of authorizations needed to open burn are described in this webpage.

Asphalt Concrete Plants

Asphalt concrete plants use equipment to produce asphalt concrete by batching or drum mixing aggregates, sand and other materials in certain proportions, then heating and coating the mixture with a binder such as bitumen or tar.  Equipment used at an asphalt concrete plant includes rotary dryers, screens, elevators, silos, weight hoppers (batchers), drum mixers, cold feed bins, conveyors, mixer engines, asphalt cement storage heaters, pollutant control devices, and auxiliary generators.
