WA Department of Ecology approves Kalama Manufacturing & Marine Export Facility use permit

From a Port of Kalama new release:

The Washington State Department of Ecology (DOE) has approved the Shorelines Conditional Use Permit for the Kalama Manufacturing & Marine Export Facility (KMMEF).

The primary shoreline impact of the overall project is a marine terminal which will be built, owned and operated by the Port of Kalama. Northwest Innovation Works (NWIW) will be the primary user of the facility, but it will also be available for layberth use by other ships. The Port will charge fees for the use of the terminal by NWIW and other users.

The marine terminal will include a dock, berth, loading equipment, utilities and a stormwater system. Methanol ships calling at the terminal will connect to shore power which reduces emissions to the air from ship engines.
