DEC to test for air pollutants around Port of Albany

Posted:
ALBANY, N.Y. – The controversy over crude oil near the Port of Albany thickens.

The State Department of Environmental Conservation will begin testing for air pollutants in the area. The testing is in response to health and environmental concerns over increased oil shipments through the port.

The area has become a major hub for shipping trainloads of crude oil from North Dakota to coastal refineries. 

Massachusetts-based Global Partners wants to modify its air permit so it can heat thick, heavy crude oil at its port terminal, making it easier to transfer.
