We’re going big in Indiana. Our plastics renewal facility, now under construction, will divert 100,000 tons of plastic waste each year from landfills and incinerators and convert it into 18 million gallons of ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel and naphtha blend stocks and 5 million gallons of wax. That’s more plastic than the weight of 5,400 tractor trailers or seven Brooklyn Bridges.

Local Impacts


Job Creation:
A total of 136 full time manufacturing jobs will be created in Northeast Indiana when the facility is fully operational.

Economic Investment:
Phase one of the plant’s construction will represent a $138.3M capital investment in Steuben County, Indiana.

Greenhouse Gas Reductions:
The recycling facility will offset 152 million metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions each year.

Resource Recovery:
Plastics will be sourced from Indiana and Chicago-area waste and recycling companies, including curbside collection programs and post-industrial plastic scrap.
