Two requests to expand permits for fossil-fuel processing on the Tacoma Tideflats have been scheduled for a public-information session by the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency on April 26.
According to the agency, Targa Sound Terminal, which runs a gasoline, petroleum and ethanol facility, has filed an application to add a product to that list.
Targa has asked for permission to receive, store and ship an average of a 107-car fuel train a week of natural gasoline, a natural gas derivative often added to regular gasoline.
The clean air agency said Emerald Services, the operator of a used motor oil refinery, wants to revise its permit to reflect that the refinery’s capacity is 10 percent higher than estimated in its application.
