builds recycling plant in Akron, Ohio
Greenstar Recycling plans to build a single-stream
recycling facility in Akron, OH that will also serve as a hub
for recycling and recovery activities in the area.
Greenstar, in partnership with the City of
Akron, will invest up to $8 million to build the facility in
a converted 195,000 sq. ft. hangar at Akron Fulton International
The facility also will convert recovered
plastic into synthetic crude oil, which will be handled by Cleveland-based
Vadxx Energy LLC through a joint venture with Greenstar. Vadxx
hopes to convert 12,000 tons of No. 3 through No. 7 plastics
into 80,000 barrels of oil annually.
