Polluting Plastic Protest @ West Virginia Legislature on Monday 3/2/20

by Diana Gooding on February 28, 2020

Ohio Valley Environmental Coalition (OVEC) has raised many issues with the PTTG & Storage Hub

ACTION ALERT — PTTG and Polluting Plastic Production

From OVEC and Concerned Ohio River Residents, February 27, 2020

What: No PTTG: Petrochemicals and Plastics Press Conference — Residents concerned about the proposed 500-square-mile petrochemical build-up in the Ohio River Valley, known as the Appalachian Storage and Trading Hub, and its associated infrastructure, including the PTTG Ethane Cracker facility, will voice their concerns.

When: Monday, March 2, 2020 from 12:30-1:30 p.m.

Where: WV State Capitol Building, Lower Rotunda, East (Attorney General side)

Who: Residents from Marshall and Ohio County, WV, and Belmont County, Ohio, along with their allies.

Why: During the 2020 West Virginia Legislative Session, many WV legislators have been promoting a so called “petrochemical renaissance” in the Ohio River Valley region, with little to no input from local community members, nor consideration of strong evidence that such infrastructure and its products are harmful to human health and the environment. Residents who would be impacted by the construction of the PTTG Ethane Cracker in Belmont County, OH, will be at the WV Capitol to voice their opposition to state Senators and Delegates.
