Thank-you for saying #NOmethanol360 with us, standing-up for healthy air and water, working
toward 100% renewable clean energy and a
sustainable future, and demanding NO new
fossil fuel infrastructure, NO fracking.

The world's largest fracked fossil-gas-to-methanol refinery and export terminal is essential dead*.
Environmental justice prevailed, the Columbia
River is safeguarded, and the prospect for truly
green jobs in Kalama preserved, thanks to
YOUR fortitude, passion, and perseverance.

A huge thank-you to Kalama and surrounding communities
from the amazing team at Columbia Riverkeeper.


PROJECT STATUS

2021-2-23 NWIW requested second extension on SWCAA air discharge permit.

2021-2-9 NWIW and POK appealed Ecology's shoreline permit denial to Shorelines Board. Read CRK's press release. Case #S21-001 to be heard in mid-December.

2021-1-21 Port of Kalama and the Corps appealed the 11/23 decision to the ninth circuit court. This process is likely to take 1-2 years.

2021-1-19 SHORELINES PERMITS DENIED! Dept. of Ecology denied key shorelines permits. NWIW cannot build refinery without them. This is huge!

Read Ecology's Press Release, Director Watson's statement, and the actual Decision Letter. See "News & Archives" page for press releases and news.

Icon of a star.Send THANK-YOU to Ecology, Dir. Watson, and Gov. Inslee for protecting our environment, health, and the Columbia here: VICTORY-METHANOL

2020-12-9 Port of Kalama's motion for reconsideration denied by federal judge who refuses to reconsider his federal court order vacating key federal construction permits. U.S. Army Corps of Engineers must conduct full EIS and include Kalama lateral pipeline in their GHG assessment. This evaluation could take a year. NWIW cannot build refinery without federal construction permits!


* NoMethanol360 recognizes appeal cases can change the project's current "denied" status, but we personally feel confident building any new massive fossil-gas projects in the Pacific Northwest is ultimately going to fail; environmental justice for all will prevail.
