Hollingsworth & Vose Fiber Company Permits

Hollingsworth & Vose Fiber Company manufactures specialty glass fiber products from sand and other materials using electric furnaces and other equipment that result in glass melting and shaping of the glass into long, very thin fibers. Glass fiber produced at this facility is a raw material used in air and liquid filtration media and specialty battery separator media. H&V acquired the site in 1996 from Evanite Fiber Corporation.

Air quality permit

DEQ issued Hollingsworth & Vose an air contaminant discharge permit in November of 2022. The permit requires H&V apply for a Title V operating permit within 180 days of the issuance of the air contaminant discharge permit. After DEQ has processed the application a draft Title V permit will be put on public notice to allow the public to comments to be made. Then after any needed changes are made the Title V permit it will be sent to U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for their review. DEQ will make any needed changes to the Title V permit before issuance.
