SHARE CBX Terminals threatening to sue city over pet. coke deadline

CBX Terminals is the firm that stores petroleum coke on Chicago’s SouthEast side. The firm is controlled by industrialists, Charles and David Koch, also known as the Koch Brothers. CBX Terminals has been forced by the city and Mayor Rahm Emanuel to construct storage sheds to keep the dust-like Pet Coke from blowing into surrounding neighborhoods. But CBX says that the 2016 deadline to building storage sheds isn’t enough time and want to push it to 2018 and are threatening to sue the city if they don’t get their way. Michael Hawthorne is an Environmental Reporter for the Chicago Tribune reports.
