Keeping the public involved while safe

Due to the coronavirus epidemic, Gov. Jay Inslee has directed state agencies to conduct public meetings remotely.

Ecology is holding an online public hearing for the draft Second Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the proposed Kalama Manufacturing and Marine Export Facility.

This is the first of three online public hearings for the draft Second Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the proposed Kalama Manufacturing and Marine Export Facility.

Pre-registration

  • Register early for the online public hearing.
  • If you want to comment during the public hearing, you must use your computer audio. Call-in attendees will only be able to listen to the public hearing.
  • The public hearing is limited to 1,000 people. Register early to reserve your place. Each public hearing will be the same, so if you miss one, you have two other options to attend.
     

Background

Northwest Innovation Works and the Port of Kalama have applied to build the Kalama Manufacturing and Marine Export Facility, a facility in Kalama that would turn natural gas into methanol. The facility would be able to produce 10,000 metric tons of methanol a day and would use 320 million cubic feet of natural gas a day.

On Sept. 2, 2020, we released a draft Second Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement focused on fully analyzing greenhouse gas emissions from the proposed Kalama methanol facility.

This analysis looked at impacts from sources of emissions, such as:

  • Greenhouse gases that escape from natural gas wells and pipelines.
  • Direct and indirect emissions produced at the facility.
  • Downstream emissions from transporting methanol to Asia.
  • How the product will be used.
