Demand a DEP public hearing on the Ethylene Oxide Title V permit renewal at the Union Carbide plant in Institute! – by 4PM 11/14

The Union Carbide facility in Institute, WV is currently requesting that the DEP renew their air permit that allows them to emit Ethylene Oxide into the air. Recent air samples of the chemical taken by the DEP at the fenceline of the Institute and South Charleston Carbide facilities confirm that the amounts of EtO being emitted from these facilities are much higher than what the EPA thinks is an acceptable cancer risk, but they are permitted to emit even more!

Please take this quick action by Monday, November 14th at 4pm (Eastern) to send a letter to the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) to request a public hearing on the Union Carbide-Institute Ethylene Oxide permit renewal.
