DALE, Ind. (WEHT) – Two groups are challenging an air permit issued for a proposed coal-to-diesel plant in Spencer County.
In June, the Indiana Department of Environmental Management issued the permit to Riverview Energy. The proposed refinery in Dale would be a first of its kind in the U.S.
An appeal was filed on behalf of Southwestern Indiana Citizens for Quality of Life and Valley Watch. They’re concerned the plant would add to the area’s air quality problems.
