Tell the Department of Ecology: Protect Washington from the World's Largest Methanol Refinery!

User-added image
We are working to stop the world's largest methanol refinery, proposed in Kalama WA. If built, this project would refine fracked gas into methanol, ship it to China, and manufacture plastics to sell on the world market. This single project would consume more gas than any sector in Washington's economy. The refinery would also rationalize building new fracked gas infrastructure, opening the floodgates for gas refining and export in Washington. 

The best way to stop this onslaught of natural gas is by getting critical permits for the refinery denied. The Department of Ecology has an opportunity to reject the Shoreline Substantial Development Permit, a critical land use permit for the Kalama Methanol refinery. Without this permit, the company proposing the refinery, Northwest Innovation Works - Kalama LLC, cannot operate. 

Please add your name to this petition urging Department of Ecology Director, Maia Bellon, to stop this project!

Please protect Washington from the world's largest methanol refinery
Governor Inslee and Department of Ecology Director Maia Bellon: Now more than ever we need champions to combat climate change and protect our environment and public health. That’s why I’m calling on you to oppose Northwest Innovation Works’ natural gas-to-methanol refinery. Building the world’s largest natural gas-to-methanol refinery in Kalama, Washington, is the wrong direction for our safety, river, and climate. The Dept. of Ecology can protect us from Northwest Innovation Works Kalama LLC’s methanol refinery by denying the Shoreline Substantial Development permit. This project flies in the face of our state’s bold vision to address climate change and create clean energy jobs. I’m calling on you to use your authority to block the Kalama methanol refinery!
