The surround, methane-to-methanol process

What are some other hazard situations Remember that, as our Tacoma City community (people) are focused on the environmental review stuff, looking directly at proposed planned methane-to-methanol industrial plant and its operation; in addition, we must keep all other Port of Tacoma current or future area industrial hazards defined and presented for community people to […]

Not more H2S into our wastewater influent!

Methanol: Tacoma stakeholder’s create the environmental focus First of all, that does not sound logical; it follows, most people in Tacoma have little- to no-idea what hazards should environmental study consider (detailed hazard study subject): as environment issues are presented by community people—life, property, environment (land, air, and water), and secure safe community—regarding the methane […]

Tacoma, can we drink the methanol effluent water?

A simple question deserves a simple answer Proposed is a lot of cubic feet per seconds of potable water feeding the methane to methanol conversion process to make the process work. So, what is wrong with the water that is expelled (effluent water) from this conversion process after it does its processing conversion job? Is […]

Methane process facts missing

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 […]

Tacoma we forget Bhopal

Bhopal, we disremember multinationals community interests Patel, N. A.,  Gandhi’s Prophecy: Corporate Violence and A Mindful Law for Bhopal, (2015) online at http://works.bepress.com/nehal_patel/10/ (visited Jan. 14, 2016). I agree, Tacoma natural gas industrial plant(s) are a fitting remembrance: what can go wrong when it goes wrong: absent community right-to-know and hazards present planning and stakeholders […]

Natural gas, the burn

We don’t need more natural fuels burned, I think this When I consider new natural gas (methane) processing facilities within my community Tacoma City, Port of Tacoma, I don’t think it’s a great ideal to allow more natural gas processes that can contribute additional chemicals to our current airborne chemicals inventory in Tacoma. I still […]

Air quality and natural gas

What happens to Tacoma City Air Emissions Inventory An air emissions inventory is an accounting of the amount of air pollution emitted by various sources. Every year, Ecology and the local clean air agencies inventory facilities with air operating permits. This is called a point source inventory. Every three years, Ecology inventories many additional sources […]

Natural gas, financial incentive

Natural gas cost forecast Prohibiting or restricting LNG trade not only is contrary to international norms agreed in the WTO but also destroys value in the United States by creating artificially low prices for domestic consumption of natural gas.(1, at 4) I think that this is funny logic; for example, “[C]reating artificially low prices for […]

Natural gas leaks are problems

What’s the problem with a natural gas leak? Natural Gas (“NG”)(methane gas) contained within a piping distribution systems is good. Broken or leaking NG distribution system pipes; it follows, is not so good. Well, consider this, maybe nothing wrong if the NG leaked is a small amount, but what if the NG leak is large […]
