Here is a re-post from the BreatheProject. It is time to leverage all the organizing we have been doing around the Shell Ethane Cracker to hamper efforts for a second cracker plant upwind of Pittsburgh. Please submit comments and try to attend the hearing if you can!!
The PTTG Corporation is trying to build a Petrochemical Plastic Factory in Shadyside, Ohio. We need you to take action today to tell the Ohio EPA that we don’t want this plant in our state by sending in your personalized comment today.
The PTTG project will turn fracked gas into 1 million tons of plastic per year. It will emit toxic pollution into Ohio and West Virginia and the agency responsible for protecting our health and the environment, Ohio EPA will use “proper design,” “good combustion practices,” and “good operating practices” as the emissions control technology for most of these emissions, without setting any specific requirements.
