VICTORY! AFTER FIGHTING THE PROPOSAL FOR THREE YEARS, A COALITION OF 37 ORGANIZATIONS HAVE ANNOUNCED THE DANGEROUS, EXPERIMENTAL PROJECT WILL NOT MOVE FORWARD!
An experimental coal/chemical plant and carbon dioxide storage project, called PurGen, has been proposed for Linden, New Jersey.
SCS Energy, a Massachusetts based company, has proposed to build a 400 MW IGCC coal plant with unproven carbon capture and sequestration technology in one of the most densely populated areas of the country.
SCS plans to process coal for energy in Linden and then send a trillion pounds of pressurized, liquid carbon dioxide waste via a 100-mile pipeline through the Raritan Bay and out into the seabed off Atlantic City.
SCS says the carbon dioxide will stay in the ocean floor forever, but they have no proof or scientific evidence to back up their claims.
Thirty-five community, environmental, religious, sportsmen and public health organizations oppose the PurGen project. View this page for a full list.
