What’s the future for the Beaver County cracker plant?Creator: Ohio Valley Environmental Resistance Category: Environmental Issues Publisher: Ohio Valley Environmental Resistance : 09 Aug, 2020 Tags:environment | fracking | gas industry | Ohio River | pollution | Shell Ethane Cracker Plant | CHECK IT OUT
This is the Shell Ethane cracker plant, on the Ohio River in Beaver County Pennsylvania. It’s just west of Monaca and Beaver. Right now, it’s paying a lot of construction worker salaries, but 90% of the jobs will disappear when it’s finished. In a year, there’ll be no more construction jobs, and a relatively small operations and maintenance staff. And when they turn it on, the pollution starts.
