MVR, a manufacturer of sustainable plastic resins, has announced a new manufacturing facility in Frankfort, Kentucky. The 220,000 square-foot facility will manufacture 90 million pounds of resin per year, and it will feature cutting-edge sorting, cleansing and pelletizing equipment. Serving as a model for future plants, it will also clean and recycle any water used during the manufacturing process and save the equivalent of 275,000 barrels of oil in carbon dioxide emissions for every 50 million pounds of recycled plastic resin that is manufactured. The plant will be fully operational by the end of 2010.
