Today an independent, third-party analysis was released by the Port of Kalama and Cowlitz County. The report finds that building the Kalama methanol plant will result in a dramatic net reduction in global GHG emissions – the equivalent of taking 2.2 million cars off the road.>
NWIW has committed to mitigate 100% of the plant’s associated GHG emissions within Washington, including those beyond direct operations. The pledge is unprecedented. It represents a removal of up to 970,000 metric tonnes of GHG emissions annually. The cumulative mitigation NWIW will achieve is roughly equivalent to the amount of carbon stored by 2,742,000 Douglas fir trees over their first 100 years of life.
