Prekomerna obremenjenost Rač, pa ti vsilijo rafinerijo

So rafinerije biodizla nevarne? Kako da ne. Lahko so. Ponavadi so.  V Račah krajanov praktično nihče ni vprašal, kaj si o izgradnji novega rafinerije v okviru kompleska Pinusa (in le nekaj metrov od zelenega pasu, ki se nadaljuje v krajinski park Rački ribniki) mislijo. Rače so preobremenjene z nevarnimi odlagališči, tudi divjimi, z izpusti v Pinusu (tovarna, potem še dodatno sežigalnica, zdaj pa še dodatno rafinerija), z velikim skladiščem goriv Petrola. Kot da jih nekdo želi na silo uničiti, ljudi pa izgnati.

Takole izgleda nova rafinerija biodizla v Pinusu, ki je ravno začela obratovati:

Biofuel plants generate new air, water, soil problems for Iowa

The Register’s analysis shows that of the 34 ethanol and biodiesel plants in operation in Iowa over the past six years, 22 have been cited by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources for violations. There are now 38 biodiesel and ethanol plants in operation.

- The state recorded 27 instances at six plants in which emissions exceeded limits for various hazardous air pollutants. The plants had four other air-related offenses.

- In 21 instances at eight locations, the plants failed to properly test the plant to see if it met environmental guidelines.

- Three violations at three locations were for open burning or illegal dumping.

- One biodiesel plant, Cargill in Iowa Falls, was cited for a fish kill caused by the improper spreading of liquid wastes. Another plant, Siouxland Energy & Livestock in Sioux Center, was cited for releasing contaminated wastewater in an attempt to dilute a manure spill from a neighboring cattle operation.

- In 17 cases at 10 plants, the facilities either didn’t apply for a permit before building or operating regulated equipment; or failed to build the plant as outlined in the permit; or failed to apply for the stricter permits needed for larger emitters of pollution. One company, Quad County Corn Processors in Galva, received two $10,000 fines in 2005 for failing to get the more elaborate permits required for larger emitters, which often call for additional control equipment.

Lynch said the early trouble with permits was a serious matter.

“They didn’t seem to realize or take seriously the need to get permits,” Lynch said. “People say, ‘So they didn’t get a permit, big deal.’ It’s not about a piece of paper, it’s about managing environmental impacts.”
