A $5 million plant will employ 20 people in Barnwell County to make oil out of plastic.
Climax Global Energy Inc. announced plans Thursday to locate a new plastics-to-oil recycling facility in Blackville. It will be Climax Global’s first industrial facility.
The company will convert mixed-waste plastics into high-grade synthetic oil that can be refined into clean transportation fuels, synthetic lubricants and commercial waxes.
The facility is expected to begin operations in mid-2012.
