Learn about the Kalama methanol refinery

By any measure, the Kalama methanol refinery slated for construction on the banks of the Columbia River at the Port of Kalama is a giant. Designed to convert a staggering amount of natural gas into methanol, the facility would ship tankers of methanol to China to be used for making plastics or to be burned as fuel.

The same project-backers proposed a similar methanol refinery in Tacoma. Public outcry over dangerous pollution from methanol drove the company out of town. Kalama is the new target.
