Residents in the area have raised concerns in the past, suggesting the approval of an expansion would cause more harm than good. Many residents say a smell already exists in the area, created by the current plant.
Adsorbent Solutions officials say they do not accept hazardous materials, and that the proposed expansion would have only affected some "mechanical" elements.
