Scaling down Kuokuang Petrochemical to get EIA passed
The Taipei Times reports that the Kuokuang Petrochemical Park investment project will be scaled down to increase the chances of it passing an environmental impact assessment according to state-owned oil refiner CPC Corp. It appears that the new strategy to get this environmentally destructive project's environmental impact assessment(EIA) passed is to scale it down and get that passed and then increase the size of the planned petrochemical park by submitting small expansion projects to ultimately achieve the original planned petrochemical park.
