Stop the Enviva Expansion in Ahoskie, NC

Wood pellet giant, Enviva, plans to increase its production at its Ahoskie, NC plant. This increase means more destruction of North Carolina’s coastal forests, more dangerous logging trucks on the road in this small town, and more dust emissions polluting the community. Enviva’s draft permit includes the installation of pollution controls. But Enviva should have installed these controls when they first began operating. Instead, they have been emitting harmful toxins into the surrounding community for years.

Our message to NC Governor Cooper and NC DEQ is clear: Stop the expansion of the wood pellet industry.

Deny this permit, halt any further expansion of the biomass wood pellet industry in the state of NC, and conduct a full review of the harm this industry is having on NC communities. Act now!
