Logical decisions need facts first
We have some methane gas processing industries proposed for Tacoma Washington, Port of Tacoma, area. This industry is moving ahead with permits and construction planning, but still missing is stakeholders (community people’s) fact information published prior to requesting stakeholder’s comments about these projects.
Tacoma stakeholders (the citizens) need more factual information related to Port of Tacoma new methanol process…, (Facebook post) (Jan. 14, 2016).
Comments second, after all facts published
Let’s get all the facts first before any public stakeholders comments are collected and evaluated for these methane processes permitted within our community.
Methanol conversion process requires lots of water. Why?
We have been told that water is required for process. See, Dunkelberger, S. (2016, January 14). Signature drive seeks to put methanol plant to a vote, Retrieved January 15, 2016, from http://www.tacomaweekly.com/news/view/signature-drive-seeks-to-put-methanol-plant-to-a-vote/
we have not been told about the process that needs the water or what the water contains (chemicals) after this process use?
State-of-the-art methanol process
So, let’s guess what that process might be that requires a lot of water for converting methane to methanol see generally, Efficient Natural Gas-to-Methanol Conversion, ARPA-E. (n.d.). Retrieved January 15, 2016, from http://arpa-e.energy.gov/?q=slick-sheet-project/efficient-natural-gas-methanol-conversion
Absent facts our community will just play the guessing game
ring a hazard into our community: first explain the hazard(s) facts then let our Tacoma community stakeholders make a decision. A decision, as to, allowing or not allowing your industry to operate within our community and it’s for export of our natural resources that once exported and gone will be gone forever.
