Shell Chemical has been granted an air quality permit for a proposed petrochemical plant in western Pennsylvania, a step the company called “a critical milestone” as it decides whether to build the multibillion-dollar project along the Ohio River.
It would be the biggest economic development project in the Ohio Valley in more than a generation – a $2.5 billion petrochemical plant called a cracker.
Shell Oil is proposing a huge petrochemical plant in Monaca. Currently it’s home to the Horse Head Corporation zinc plant. The zinc plant is about to close and move to North Carolina, eliminating hundreds of jobs for our region.
