Tell the OH EPA Do NOT grant any permit to SOBE to burn Synthetic Gas

It has happened! Draft permit issued July 6, 2023! JOIN US to keep  this dangerous plant trying to get permits to burn synthetic gas and pyrolyze tires OUT OF HERE! This business applied to PUCO as a steam heating/cooling plant and changed their business plan to producing synthetic gas from pyrolysis of tires in Youngstown next to our populated neighborhoods and revitalized downtown!


Register a complaint with PUCO

Reach out to the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio and tell them you don't want SOBE in our Valley!
