About RefineryMaps.com

RefineryMaps.com was inspired after listening to multiple groups of parents tell stories about sick kids living in close proximity to oil and natural gas refinery plants. The maps aim to document health and safety concerns by residents all over the World in an effort to provide more transparency about the risks. This maps are to serve as a platform for people to express their safety concerns about refinery operations that may be jeopardizing their health and safety. Please review or presentation below on the history of our company and how we collect data.

Purpose of the Map

It has been well documented that there are many safety implications of living near electrical substations and power plants that pollute our air. However, energy companies still claim that these areas are safe and are not the cause of health related concerns many residents living near these sites are experiencing. Our map raises the awareness of various illnesses potentially caused by living in close proximity to energy operations.

Lack of Transparency

Energy is consumption is critical to our well being and life. However, the risks are still unknown about living near power plant locations and the safety implications they impose. Doctors frequently see health issue patterns in communities but are restricted from sharing information due to privacy laws. It is our objective to document health concerns on a map and leave it up to the scientists and readers to make their own conclusions.
