Simple. Reliable. Accessible.
Environmental data isn't always easy - to understand, to believe, or even to find - no matter
who measures it or reports it. And it isn't easy for an environmental advocate and an oil refinery
to work together. But that's exactly what the Minnesota Center for Environmental Advocacy (MCEA)
and Flint Hills Resources (FHR) are doing with this site.
The mission of Flint Hills Resources, maker of transportation fuels and energy products,
is to be safe and clean while still creating value. MCEA's mission is to use law, science and
research to protect Minnesota's natural resources, its wildlife and the health of its people.
Together, they have created a transparent view of the environmental performance of FHR's Pine
Bend refinery in Rosemount, MN. Call up graphs that show the exact emissions - and impacts - of
the refinery. See how FHR is doing on its 5 year/50% emission reduction plan. Put this data in
context and learn what it means to you. And learn about the collaboration between FHR and MCEA
that gives this site credibility.
