ASHLEY — Indiana Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch and other elected officials got to see the “magic” that makes waste-to-fuel producer Brightmark a company that will help lead to reducing the glut in global plastic waste.

As part of a swing through Steuben County on Thursday, Crouch, along with Rep. Denny Zent, R-Angola, Sen. Sue Glick, R-LaGrange, Angola Mayor Dick Hickman, and a host of other guests, got a look at Brightmark as it works to fine tune its operations and work toward full production, which is expected to occur early 2021.

“It’s a recycling facility on one end and a refinery on the other with a magic black box in between,” said Jay Schabel, president of Brightmark’s plastics recycling division and one of the founders who brought the plant from inception to reality.
