New Polyethylene Facility & Corunna Cracker Expansion (Phase 3)
New Polyethylene Facility
The Sarnia-Lambton region has been chosen as the location for a new world class polyethylene facility that will use our proprietary Advanced SCLAIRTECH™ technology. The project is linked to another phase in the expansion of the Corunna ethylene cracker. A final investment decision was made in 2017, and start-up of the facility is targeted for late 2021, in line with regulatory approvals.
Corunna Cracker Expansion - Phase 3
This project is the third phase in the conversion and expansion of the Corunna cracker, which began with the Corunna Cracker Revamp and continues with the Corunna All Ethane Conversion. It will increase the unit’s current ethylene capacity by more than 50%, up to the rate currently approved by regulators. This project is linked to the construction of a new world class polyethylene facility that will use our proprietary Advanced SCLAIRTECH™ technology.
NOVA Chemicals is committed to working directly with our community members to strengthen the value we bring to our communities and minimize any impact we may have. We seek community input, concerns, ideas and expertise through public consultation efforts. We rely on the communities' feedback and input to help us develop solid, practical and meaningful approaches to the way to we business.
NOVA Chemicals is a leading producer of plastics and chemicals that make everyday life healthier, easier and safer. The Corunna Site is a petrochemical facility that can produce 1.8 billion pounds of ethylene and up to 700 million pounds of co-products annually. Moore and St. Clair convert ethylene supplied by Corunna into up to 1.3 billion pounds of low-density and high-density polyethylene. Our customers then use these products in everyday applications such as food packaging, caps and closures, drums and intermediate bulk containers.
We value your input and suggestions at any phase of the Project. Please contact us for more information.
