MONACA — Environmental groups are mobilizing to monitor air and water quality around the soon-to-open Royal Dutch Shell petrochemical cracking plant in Beaver County.

Several groups held a joint videoconference on Tuesday evening which drew more than 200 people who listened to how various organizations have already begun testing air and water samples to establish a baseline ahead of the official opening of the plant along the Ohio River near Monaca later this year.

While most people knew little about Marcellus Shale when the natural gas drilling boom began in western Pennsylvania and the tri-state area in the late 2000s, the project’s executive director of environmental health, Alison Steele, said groups like hers work to educate the public on what to expect. from the cracker factory.

She said various environmental groups have positioned numerous air and water monitoring stations around Beaver County, while Shell is required to monitor and share results from four plant sites and 20 around the property. The Peters Township-based group also produced baseline test results from a “monitoring network” to see if there are any changes in the environment when the plant is operating. Steele said the group is pushing for accountability and trying to get comprehensive health policies from state regulators so residents aren’t the only ones “lead the fight”.

Steele also gave the 225 videoconference attendees a brief history of the plant in which the Pennsylvania state government offered a $1.6 billion tax incentive to Shell to build the plant here in return for 600 jobs in progress. Construction of the plant began in November 2017 on the 340-acre property in Potter Township, which was once a zinc smelter.

“The question everyone asks is: ‘Why here? Why now?'” she says.

As renewable energy sources become more affordable, the natural gas industry has moved to find other production uses for its product. The cracking plant will separate ethane from natural gas to produce ethylene which enables the creation of plastic products commonly used by consumers.

Heather Hulton VanTassel, executive director of Three Rivers Waterkeeper, said her group had already seen evidence that the plant was starting some production, as they had found plastic “Nurds” in the river. Nurdles are produced at the factory and then shipped across the country for makers to create various plastic products. These small pellets can be ingested by wildlife or contain dangerous chemicals that can be released into the environment, she said.

She said they are currently working in the area on boat patrols to find nurdles and have baseline water quality readings that will let them know if there are any issues when the plant is fully operational. She said the environmental organization will continue to monitor water quality in the Ohio River and around its watershed to ensure there is no release of harmful chemicals that could endanger humans or wildlife.

She added that environmental organizations that monitor air and water quality do not want this area of ​​Beaver County to become a “sacrifice area” for industry.

“We are here to monitor the water” she says. “And we will work hard not to end up in this place. … “We press the DEP (Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection) to account.

The precise date when the plant will begin official operations was not immediately known. An email sent to Royal Dutch Shell headquarters on Wednesday morning about the seminar’s environmental concerns did not receive an immediate response.

The hour-long virtual meeting was hosted by Beyond Plastics and began with some breaking news, as Judith Enck, president of a Vermont-based environmental group, announced that a “side agreement” brokered by US Senator Joe Manchin to cut red tape with new energy-related projects stalled. Manchin, DW.Va., had reached a tentative agreement with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, DN.Y., to support the federal Inflation Reduction Act this summer. However, the deal had received lukewarm support from Democrats and Republicans, condemning the initiative.

“We are leaving on a high note” Enck said to start the meeting.

Alexis Goldsmith, National Organizing Director of Beyond Plastics, said environmental groups played a vital role in opposing the legislation and were one of the reasons “why the side deal with Manchin didn’t go through.” She pointed out that “tenacious response” as an example of what local groups are doing to protect the environment of the community living around the Shell cracker plant.

It seems fitting that a town founded by German immigrants 177 years later becomes the headquarters of a German multinational’s high-tech factory.

Hannover, Germany-based Continental lifted the curtain Wednesday on its new $110 million state-of-the-art auto manufacturing plant in New Braunfels.

The 215,000 square foot facility on Kohlenberg Road on the northeast side of town will manufacture components for the company’s Advanced Driver Assistance Systems business, which includes radar sensors to support safety functions such as blind spot detection and forward collision warning.

Wednesday’s event, a groundbreaking ceremony, marks the completion of the construction process, which began last year.

Approximately 150 guests, including state and local officials, community members and employees, joined to mark the occasion, which included an exclusive tour of the facility.






Visitors tour Continental’s manufacturing plant during their grand opening on Wednesday, September 28, 2022 in New Braunfels.




Plant manager Juergen Martin said the completion of the installation represents an important step in the company’s long-term strategy to advance growth and innovation in autonomous mobility.

“I think the whole team is delighted with today because we worked very hard together to achieve this,” said Martin. “We are becoming operational and it is very exciting. It is the technology of the future to enable autonomous and automated driving. The sensors we use here are essential to make driving safer. We want to save lives.

The plant also allows the company to expand its research and development efforts in assisted and automated driving technology as demand for smart safety features grows.

The facility represents the company’s first automotive site in the United States dedicated to Continental’s autonomous mobility business area, with plans to create more than 500 high-paying jobs with excellent benefits by 2026.

Over the past 25 years, according to Frank Petznick, member of the Automotive Board and head of the autonomous mobility business line, the company has researched and developed driver assistance systems that have become essential features vehicles today.

“We have tremendous growth in this area of ​​our business, and the addition of this new production facility will help us continue our trajectory to further advance technology,” Petznick said. “At Continental, we are always looking for new opportunities to make drivers safer.

The pedestrian-oriented streetscape of the now-completed Station Square redevelopment has recently seen a further enhancement of its public realm with significant works of public art.

Anthem Properties worked with renowned local artist Douglas Coupland to create four sculptures, spread across two sites of the redevelopment.

Three sculptures stand outside JJ Bean Coffee on the northwest corner of the intersection of Kingsborough Street and Silver Drive, while one sculpture – the tallest at 50ft tall – stands at the southeast corner of the prominent intersection of Kingsway and McKay Avenue.

The sculptures are designed to resemble the gem-like material that is created by the buildup and curing of automotive paint slag, called Fordite.

Coupland notes that the appearance of stacked colorful gems is an explicit nod to Station Square’s historic past as the site of a car manufacturing plant for the Ford Motor Company.

The factory opened in 1938 and closed in 1968. The building remained on the site until 1988, when it was demolished for the multi-phase development of the first iteration of the Station Square mall, according to the city. of Burnaby.

Fordite, aptly named after the automaker, is the term mineralogists have given to the hardened layers of paint found under old paint spray booths at Michigan’s Ford factories. The chunks of layered automotive enamel paint are often up to 20cm thick, and they told experts what car model was used and what year it was sprayed.

“These layers of colored paint are not unlike the layers of the Grand Canyon and, as with most sedimentary forms, can be called minerals, in this case an ‘anthropogenic’ or man-made mineral. Chunks of fordite, when broken and polished, become extraordinarily beautiful gemstones and are highly sought after in the world of gemology,” Coupland said.

“So for the Station Square site, I created piles of polished Fordite gemstones that are deliberately bold to remind people in a jubilant way that we once lived, not even that long ago, in a world where car colors were used as they still are in fashion, to hasten a vehicle’s shortened lifespan and create expectations for newer, more differently colored cars.

After acquiring Station Square in 2004, Anthem Properties embarked on a multi-year planning process to redevelop the mall into a high-density, mixed-use neighborhood that is part of the city’s eventual Metrotown Downtown plan. city ​​of Burnaby. Beedie is also a development partner.

After a decade of construction, the new station plaza was officially completed in August 2022. There are five towers with approximately 1,800 homes, plus 450,000 square feet of commercial and office space in the catwalks and on the level of the street, effectively activating the pedestrian-oriented audience. the spaces. Major tenants include Price Smart Foods, representing the return of the former Save-On-Foods through its sister brand, as well as WeWork, Cactus Club and Earls restaurants.

The redevelopment was designed by local firm Chris Dikeakos Architects and New York-based Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates.

The previous iteration of Station Square consisted of low-rise structures, with most of the 12-acre footprint being used as parking. It was anchored by Save-On-Foods, sadly remembered for its roof collapse minutes after grand opening in 1988. The collapse of a 6,400 square foot section of the roof crashed 20 cars in the store. . There were no fatalities, but 21 people were injured.

The first iteration of Metropolis at the Metrotown Mall opened in 1986, adding to the area’s existing Sears Canada department store and a supermarket. The SkyTrain Metrotown station opened the previous year in 1985, as part of the original segment of the Expo line between Waterfront and New Westminster stations in time for Expo ’86.

Vedanta Ltd and Taiwanese electronics manufacturing company Foxconn will invest $19.5 billion to build factories for the production of semiconductors and displays in Gujarat. According to a Reuters report, the company has already received power and capital expenditure subsidies from Gujarat to build units near Ahmedabad.

Vedanta and Foxconn to set up $19.5 billion chip factory in Gujarat

The Rs 1.54 trillion mega-investment, which the Western state said was the largest ever by a company in an Indian state, comes months ahead of local elections in the state where the political party of Modi faces fierce competition from the opposition.

India’s own Silicon Valley

Vedanta Ltd and Foxconn said their joint venture will create jobs for over 100,000 people in Gujarat. Most of the world’s chip manufacturing is confined to certain countries such as Taiwan and now India is attracting manufacturing companies to ‘here in a new era in electronics manufacturing’ as it tries to find ways to have fleas in abundance.

Vedanta chairman, Anil Agarwal, at a public event in Gujarat, said the company’s aim is to launch display and chip manufacturing within two years. The event also saw state officials sign an agreement.

“India’s Silicon Valley is getting closer now,” Agarwal tweeted after the event.

The state government has confirmed that Vedanta will set up a display manufacturing unit with an investment of Rs 945 billion and another chip manufacturing unit with an investment of Rs 600 billion. The two companies will work closely with the state government to deploy high-tech clusters with leading infrastructure, the statement added.

India aim for first place

Foxconn will come as a technical partner, while Vedanta will finance the project. Foxconn, in a statement, said Gujarat’s active support and infrastructure “increases confidence in establishing a semiconductor factory.”

In addition, the Indian government has also announced incentives for companies investing in semiconductor manufacturing as the country is poised to become a major player in the global semiconductor and chip supply chain. .

Vedanta will be the third company after the international consortium ISMC and IGSS Ventures based in Singapore to announce the establishment of a chip factory in the country. The other two companies will set up their factories in Karnataka and Tamil Nadu respectively.
