BALTIMORE (AP) - A Maryland agency says a permit has expired to build what clean air advocates say would be the largest trash burning incinerator in the country.

The Maryland Department of the Environment found Thursday that the permit for the waste-to-energy plant proposed for Baltimore expired when construction stopped in October 2013.

The project was being developed by New York-based Energy Answers.

Leah Kelly, an attorney with the Environmental Integrity Project, says the plant would have been a large source of toxic air pollution in an area that already has high air pollution.
