Improving Air Quality in the North Boroughs – ACCAN

ACCAN’s campaign to turn a now-shuttered industrial coke plant on Neville Island into a healthier development has shifted into high gear. Campaign work includes reducing emissions from the industrial operations on Bruno and Neville Island, including Metalico, stopping the spread of Fracsilica from the fracking industry into neighborhoods and finding a sustainable, healthy alternative for the former Shenango site.
