Middletown Coke Withdraws Ohio Power Siting Board Application

On the heels of the Ohio Supreme Court decision, Middletown Coke withdraws their Ohio Power Siting Board application. It seems they have no desire to answer questions regarding location and environmental impact, which the Ohio Supreme Court deemed legally necessary. SunCoke would have had the responsibility to go back to the Ohio Power Siting Board and try to prove that the plant was sited in a way that “represents the minimum adverse environmental impact.”

Their current location is in the middle of an elementary school, retirement village and residential area - a location which has the most adverse effect on children, elderly and families.

Attached is the withdrawal notice filed on December 3, 2010.
