SEATTLE (AP) — The Environmental Protection Agency wants the Army Corps of Engineers to do a thorough review of the impacts of exporting U.S. coal through Northwest ports.

A subsidiary of Ambre Energy is planning to build a facility at the Port of Morrow along the Columbia River near Boardman, Ore., to ship coal from the Powder River basin of Montana and Wyoming to Asia. It needs approval from the Corps.

The EPA wants the Corps to address the overall impacts to human health and the environment from increases in greenhouse gas emissions, rail traffic and mining.

The coal-export project is one of at least six planned in the Northwest, including ones at Bellingham, Longview and Grays Harbor in Washington state, and at Port of St. Helens and Port of Coos Bay in Oregon.
