Anne S started this petition to Minister Bernard Davis (Environment & Climate Change)

This facility proposes that we import garbage from other countries to be processed here. Newfoundland and Labrador is hailed for being one of the most beautiful places in the world. We are in an economically vulnerable position and this is what they will use against us to try and convince us that the jobs and influx of money will help. We don’t need this kind of help. We don’t want to sacrifice the beauty of this place for a few jobs. Make your voice heard loud and clear: we will not stand for such bribery.

The potential impacts to the environment and wildlife is too great for such a plant. Please help us stop such a facility from being built. We do NOT want waste from other countries to be brought here for processing.

PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION AND MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD.

Minister Bernard Davis (Environment & Climate Change) at bernarddavis@gov.nl.ca

Lewisporte Waste to Energy Project (Reg. 2181)
Proponent: EnviroPower Renewable Development Inc.

The proponent is proposing to develop a waste to energy plant in Lewisporte that would convert biomass and plastic waste into renewable energy and ultra-low sulfur liquid and gas hydrocarbon fuels. The facility would be comprised of a gasification waste to energy combined heat and power (CHP) plant, and a hydrothermal liquefaction (HTL) plant. The undertaking would include construction of the CHP and HTL plants, water treatment facility, sorting facility, tank farm, bulk cargo port and fuel jetty. A description of the project can be found on the Department’s web page at https://www.gov.nl.ca/ecc/env-assessment/projects-list/

The undertaking was registered on January 10, 2022; the deadline for public comment is February 16, 2022; and, the minister’s decision is due by February 24, 2022.

I will provide updates on the public consultation process, environmental assessment process and any other information available to me. If you wish to discuss this project or any issue with me; feel free to email me at derekbennett@gov.nl.ca.


Please do not use Facebook messenger or tags as they are very easy to overlook.
