EFSEC declines to review Kalama Methanol Refinery

This summer, we asked Washington's Energy Facility Site Evaluation Council (EFSEC) to review the proposed methanol refinery in Kalama. Our petition explained why the largest proposed methanol refinery in the world deserves a thorough review by the state of Washington. EFSEC denied our request and declined to evaluate the methanol refinery.

The proposed methanol refinery would consume one third as much natural gas as is currently used in all of Washington and could lead to the construction of a massive new gas supply pipeline into the Northwest. The project has clear statewide implications and should be reviewed by EFSEC.

Thank you for your continued support in fighting the Kalama methanol refinery. Together, we will show the State of Washington, the Port of Kalama, and the China-backed methanol company that Cowlitz County is not a fossil fuel export zone.
