Richmond County, NC needs your help right now to stop a biomass wood pellet facility.
50 acres of forests a day in North and South Carolina would be turned into pellets and then shipped to Europe to burn for electricity. The health and economic impacts would be devastating, and the community doesn’t want it.
Richmond County needs your voice right now. Take action!
In 2016 Richmond County was ranked 90 out of 100 counties in the State of North Carolina for health outcomes.
The NC Department of Environmental Quality issued permits to Enviva, the biomass company proposing the facility, that contained false information regarding the plant’s location and violated air quality regulations, yet no public hearing was ever held.
Citizens were denied a voice in the decision. Big biomass is environmental injustice.
Enviva, the world’s largest exporter of wood pellets, threatens the livelihoods of communities, forests, and the climate. Enviva is proposing to build their fourth wood pellet biomass facility in Richmond County.
