What: No PTTG: Petrochemicals and Plastics Press Conference
Residents concerned about the proposed 500-square-mile petrochemical build-up in
the Ohio River Valley, known as the Appalachian Storage and Trading Hub, and its
associated infrastructure, including the PTTG Ethane Cracker facility, will voice their
When: Monday, March 2, 2020 from 12:30-1:30 p.m.
Where: WV State Capitol Building, Lower Rotunda, East (Attorney General side)
Who: Residents from Marshall and Ohio County, WV, and Belmont County, Ohio, along
with their allies.
Why: During the 2020 West Virginia Legislative Session, many WV legislators have been
promoting a so called “petrochemical renaissance” in the Ohio River Valley region,
with little to no input from local community members, nor consideration of strong
evidence that such infrastructure and its products are harmful to human health and
the environment. Residents who would be impacted by the construction of the
PTTG Ethane Cracker in Belmont County, OH, will be at the WV Capitol to voice
their opposition to state Senators and Delegates.
