    This proposed Rockwool factory doesn't belong here or anywhere on this planet! It isn't even planning to install the best available bags in its very problematic baghouse, let alone the much better high efficiency wet scrubber for its giant and totally unnecessary coal-fired melt furnace! It is totally unnecessary because Rockwool has a much cleaner and much more efficient electric arc furnace. And don't even get me started on how totally unnecessary the insulation batting product is! There are so many better insulation batting alternatives. Shame on Rockwool for its terribly misleading greenwashing! And shame on the WV officials giving away our tax dollars to this heavy polluting factory!

    Rockwool is literally toxic for our environment and has been figuratively toxic for our community. Just stop!

    Go home. The jobs you may offer do not outweigh the damage you have already done and will continue to do.

    Please, do not sacrifice our children, air, water and soil on the altar of greed. Rockwool is not healthy for children and other living things.

    This company will put everyone’s health at great risk. They have the capability of building a cleaner factory, but they refuse. We don’t want them here!

    Rockwool is appalling company and I can’t believe our government officials RECRUITED this company in the first place and did nothing to stop Rockwool after community opposition.

    It is immoral for Rockwool to build a heavy industrial factory across the street from an elementary school.

    Thousands have made it clear that Toxic Rockwool should not be built in Jefferson County. Locating this toxic factory so close to schools is immoral. The first order of school business is to keep children safe. Toxic Rockwool does not belong near schools.

    There was never a public hearing; many inaccuracies have been found in materials submitted for permits. This is the wrong kind of business/industry for Jefferson County.
