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.

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.

Clean Air Kalama

We made it into the #Cheers section of The Columbian

Cheers: To considering the environment. A Cowlitz County judge has ruled that the environmental review of a proposed methanol refining project in Kalama must include analysis of potential greenhouse gas emissions. Northwest Innovation Works is planning a $2 billion facility to refine methanol from natural gas for shipment to China.

In considering large energy projects — such as a now-abandoned plan for an oil terminal at the Port of Vancouver and a proposed coal terminal in Longview — the state would be remiss to ignore the global impact and the threat of climate change. Carbon emissions must be counted among the costs of a project for residents in Washington and beyond. Providing a complete picture of a project’s repercussions is the only way for state regulators to make an informed decision when considering whether to approve the Kalama refinery.
