Kalama Manufacturing and Marine Export Facility Second Supplemental EIS

The Department of Ecology (Ecology) invites you to provide comments on the second Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Kalama Manufacturing and Marine Export Facility.

Northwest Innovation Works, LLC. proposes to develop and operate a natural gas-to-methanol production plant and storage facilities on approximately 90 acres at the Port of Kalama. Methanol will be loaded on to ships at a new dock that will be owned by the Port and transported to Asia. The methanol is intended for production of a plastics ingredient, olefins, but the methanol could also be used, in part, as fuel.

Ecology completed a draft Second Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement focused on fully analyzing greenhouse gas emissions from the proposed Kalama methanol facility. This analysis also looked at impacts from upstream emissions, such as the greenhouse gases that escape from natural gas wells and pipelines, direct and indirect emissions produced at the facility, downstream emissions from transporting the methanol to its intended destination in China, and how the product will be used.
