Bill calls for Appalachian petrochemical hub-Parkersburg News and Sentinel
A bill directing the Appalachian Regional Commission to direct money for the creation of the Appalachian petrochemical hub was introduced by West Virginia’s three members of the U.S. House of Representatives.
The Appalachian Regional Energy Hub would store the liquids from natural gas, including ethane. The liquids are used to make plastics, among other uses.
Three sites have been identified in West Virginia for the hub, including in Tyler County in the Bens Run Area.
