Mooretown, Ontario, Canada
Situated in Mooretown, Ontario, about 140 miles (225 kilometers) west of Toronto, NOVA Chemicals' Moore plant converts ethylene into polyethylene resins.
The facility has been operating since 1977 and was originally owned by Union Carbide Corporation, until NOVA Chemicals' acquisition in 1987. During the site's history, both high-density (HDPE) and low-density (LDPE) polyethylene has been consistently manufactured using NOVAPOL processing technology.
Ethylene feedstock arrives at the Moore site via pipeline from NOVA Chemicals' Corunna site. The facility has a rated capacity of about 840 million pounds of polyethylene per year. These materials are transported to end-product manufacturers, in the form of small pellets, via rail and truck throughout North America.
Polyethylene resins from Moore are used for applications in a variety of markets and industries: from blown film to extrusion and thermo-forming to injection molding - these HDPE and LDPE resins are found in multitudes of consumer goods. Some of the most recognizable end products include shrink wrap, food packaging wrap, trash cans and drums, pipes, gas containers, automotive parts and outdoor toys.
Approximately 170 full-time employees work at the Moore Site. The facility is ISO 9001 registered.
