Construction Starts On Cochranton-Area Tire Recycling Plant

April 28, 2013

Officials of the company building a tire recycling facility in the Cochranton area and a spokesman for the state’s Department of Environmental Protection have confirmed that construction of the $350-million facility has begun.

Work is underway even without a resolution in an appeal objecting to the DEP’s approval of an Air Quality Plan for the plant.  The DEP’s Gary Clark told reporters last week that state law requires the start of construction within eighteen months of the receipt by the developer of a permit for the work.  The permit was issued in October, 2011.

A firm known as Erie Renewable Energy has unveiled plans to construct a facility capable of converting into energy some 900 tons of waste tires per day.  Their plant is being built in the Keystone Regional Industrial Park in Greenwood Township.
