    Petrochemical plant continues to plead its case despite environmental concerns (2011/04/21)

    The Kuokuang petrochemical plant is undergoing its 5th and final environmental impact assessment review. Both supporters and those who oppose the project expressed their views. Supporters say it is an important part of Taiwan’s future economic development while others say the health risk and environmental impact are simply too great.

    The 5th Environmental Impact Assessment review for a petrochemical industrial park project pitted supporters and protesters in the public meeting. Those supporting the project say it is vital for Taiwan’s continued economic development. Detractors warned of the environmental and health concerns. A local medical union presented data opposing the project.

    We have already entered an era where the suspended particles in the air are around PM2.5, requiring special control. There hasn’t been a single day when the air quality level reaches a green indicator (safe levels) as each day warrants a yellow or higher rating.

    Due to this pressure, Kuokuang’s Chairman offered four major concessions.

    I have repeatedly stressed that we will not pump groundwater and we are willing to participate in conservation activity for the Sousa chinensis white dolphin. We will take care of local people in Changhua, giving them good job opportunities. As for the amount of carbon dioxide released, we will make a significant drop to a level of 6.28 million tons.

    Although this particular review meeting has yet to conclude, the EIA committee expected to conclude expert testimony on Thursday and convene a closed door meeting on Friday with a decision released before noon.

    國光五環評

    環保署週四召開國光石化案第五次環評審查會議,會議中正反兩方,各自表達論述,有人力挺國光石化是台灣未來經濟的重要籌碼,有人則認為會破壞當地生態,影響到當地鄉民的健康。

    國光石化召開第五次專案小組環評審查會議,力挺的人覺得國光石化是台灣經濟發展的重要一步,反對的人則認為有害生態與健康,連醫盟代表也拿出數據強調反對的立場。

    我們已經進入(空氣中懸浮微粒)PM2.5要管控的時代了,沒有一天是綠色(安全)的,每天黃色以上。

    或許是迫於壓力,讓國光石化董事長不得不退讓,提出四大妥協。

    [[國光石化董事長 陳寶郎]]
    我再三強調我們不會抽用地下水,願意以實際行動來做白海豚保育,我們也會照顧彰化當地居民有很好的就業機會,而且二氧化碳量,會大幅下降到628萬噸。

    儘管會議還沒有結果,但環保署表示,會議進行的進度和預計差不多,21日充分聽取專家和學者意見,22日召開閉門會議,中午前做出結論。
