Activist groups are challenging the permit allowing the Holly-Frontier oil refinery in Woods Cross to expand its capacity.
The Utah Division of Air Quality issued a permit last month allowing Holly-Frontier to more than double its refining capacity. Work is already underway as the company prepares to install new equipment.
The HollyFrontier oil refinery in Woods Cross has been given a green light from the Utah Division of Air Quality to triple its refining capacity – even as it’s promised to reduce pollution.
The expansion will mean hundreds of millions of dollars of new investment in the refinery as well as at least sixty new jobs. But HollyFrontier spokesperson Mike Astin says there are still challenges to deal with from groups opposed to it.
