California’s Richmond City Council has approved an ordinance to phase out storage of coal and petroleum coke in that city. The ordinance gives Levin-Richmond Terminal Corporation on the Santa Fe Channel east of Point Richmond and south of the Iron Triangle neighbourhood three years to wind down coal and coke storage operations. The terminal stores coal shipped from Utah mines before export to Japan. Richmond City Mayor Mr Tom Butt said “The coal ordinance is created following complaints from the public about increased coal dust in the air in parts of Richmond. It would govern only the storage of coal in Richmond; it will not have any effect on transportation of coal through the city by rail.”

Levin-Richmond Terminal is a dry bulk cargo marine terminal on the San Francisco Bay in Richmond, California. It is privately owned by the Levin Richmond Terminal Corporation. Levin Richmond Terminal Corporation began exporting coal in 2013. It had already been exporting petcoke for decades. The petcoke comes from the Phillips66 refinery to load onto boats headed for Australia and Europe.
