Show Your Opposition to the PTTG Cracker Plant

If you use social media, join in to show your opposition to the PTTG ethane cracker plant, which would be one component of the proposed Appalachian Storage Hub/petrochemical build-out

If built, this cracker will sit on the banks of the Ohio River in Dilles Bottom, OH, directly across the river from Moundsville, WV, and could impact air quality as far north as Wheeling, WV. That is not even taking into account the potential greenhouse gas emissions, which we add to globe’s escalating climate crisis. Additionally, the plastic created by this cracker would exacerbate global plastic pollution.

Dustin White is a project coordinator with OVEC and a lifelong WV resident. Dustin grew up in the so called “coalfields” of Southern WV where he has deep multi-generational roots and now lives in Charleston WV. His work with OVEC started as a volunteer, fighting the extreme form of coal mining known as mountaintop removal and other coal mining related issues, lobbying for new state cemetery protection laws, and more. Now, on staff, Dustin’s work focuses on stopping the new threat of the petrochemical monstrosity known as the Appalachian Storage and Trading Hub in the Ohio Valley/Appalachian region. Dustin hopes to one day see a Appalachia where the people and places he love are no longer exploited and sacrificed for the fossil fuel industry’s short-term profit.
