I thought the refinery was to be permanently shut down following the explosion in June of 2019? Will the refinery be permanently shut down?

Evergreen is responsible only for the historic (pre-2012) contamination that exists below the surface in soil and groundwater at the Site. Because of that, our work includes investigating and cleanup of the extent of contamination in the subsurface that existed before the sale of the facility from Sunoco to Philadelphia Energy Solutions (PES) in 2012.

Evergreen understands that Hilco Redevelopment Partners, the current owner, plans to redevelop the site and does not plan to operate the site as a refinery.  Hilco Redevelopment Partners’ work to decommission and demolish the refinery began in the summer of 2020.
