POLITICO: The biggest chemical plant in the U.S. is at risk of collapsing.
A new report from the nonprofit watchdog group 350.org shows that a massive chemical plant known as the New Jersey Generating Station is at serious risk of collapse, and that the company is not alone.
As Bloomberg’s Alex Moe reported last week, “New Jersey Generations parent company, Edison Energy, said in a filing with the U, that the collapse is “unlikely” but that “there is no reason to believe that this will not occur.
“The report found that more than $1 billion in contracts have been awarded to the company since 2013, when it was still a small operator in New Jersey.
It also found that, between 2013 and 2017, the company received contracts worth more than a billion dollars.”
The plant was originally built to produce chlorinated hydrocarbons, a byproduct of the chemical industry. “
This is a total of $1.,764,871,539.70 in total.”
The plant was originally built to produce chlorinated hydrocarbons, a byproduct of the chemical industry.
But in 2014, the plant was shut down and replaced with a plant that used chlorine to process ammonia.
That plant has since been shut down, too.
In the report, 350.com wrote that the plant is at “serious risk” of collapsing, and said it will be the first in the country to experience a collapse.
“These are plants that are the source of some of the nation’s largest industrial facilities, and we are concerned about the potential for a massive environmental disaster if these facilities fail,” the group wrote.
The New York Times reported last month that the Environmental Protection Agency has approved a permit to import up to 5,000 tons of chlorinated wastewater from Brazil to replace the New York Generating Stations waste water treatment plant.
The agency is expected to approve the permits for the Brazil export permit in the coming weeks.
The company behind the Brazil plant, Odebrecht, has also been awarded a $3.7 billion contract to build an ammonia processing plant at the plant.
