Richmond County Residents Oppose Enviva Mill and Rally for Health and Environmental Justice

On March 25th, Dogwood Alliance joined the Concerned Citizens of Richmond County for a Rally for Health and Environmental Justice. Local residents fear that the proposed Enviva wood pellet facility will bring harmful dust pollution, constant noise, dangerous truck traffic, and forest degradation. The community rallied to affirm and stand for their rights to clean air, clean water, standing forests, and strong and healthy communities.

All of the facilities are owned and operated by Enviva and exist for the sole purpose of producing wood pellets to feed the market in Europe, particularly the UK-based utility company Drax.
