Better In Our Back Yard (BIOBY) is disappointed in today’s announcement from the Minnesota Court of Appeals on PolyMet’s air emissions permit, sending it back to state regulators for further unnecessary review.
BIOBY trusts PolyMet’s 15+ years of careful research, environmental review and planning conducted by PolyMet. The MPCA evaluated and granted PolyMet’s air emissions permit based on the actual size and scope of the proposed project. PolyMet has Minnesota’s best interests in mind and, when open, will create 350+ good-paying jobs for Minnesotan families. BIOBY believes that moving forward with the NorthMet Project is the right decision for Minnesota.
BIOBY will continue to maintain our support of industrial development in Minnesota and PolyMet’s continual advancement to operation and production.
