It's not every day that you associate landfill gas with plastics production. Plastics News senior reporter Frank Esposito gets a whiff of the operation at Calgary, Alberta-based Nova Chemicals' EPS plant in Painesville, Ohio, in an interview with site manager Brian Fedor. Nova worked with Granger Energy â€" a recycling firm in Lansing, Mich. â€" to develop a pipeline system from the Lake County landfill, about two miles away from Nova's EPS plant.
