Methanol has been getting a lot of attention in the Pacific Northwest lately, and with good reason. Three methanol plants proposed along the Columbia River and Puget Sound could make our region the country’s top methanol producer and exporter, while heavily taxing our iconic water systems and upping our air and carbon pollution loads.
Sightline pulled together a quick cheat sheet on the projects to help the public get the facts about methanol in Cascadia. You are welcome to and encouraged to download, share, and print our infographic (it looks great even in grayscale).
