About FindIt Lambton
NOVA Chemicals is excited to be expanding its operations in St. Clair Township, and as part of their commitment to build positive community relationships, they want to create opportunities to connect the construction workforce with local businesses. The FindIt Lambton mobile app is NOVA Chemicals' way of making that happen.
From food and beverage services, to rental accommodations, retail, entertainment and more, the app is intended to be a one-stop shop for tradespeople working on NOVA Chemicals' projects to find what they need in Lambton County.
About the Projects
NOVA Chemicals is moving forward with two significant projects for its Ontario operations involving a capital investment of approximately $2 billion CAD. With these projects, NOVA Chemicals is not only expanding its Sarnia-Lambton asset base and improving competitiveness, but also bringing new technology to Ontario, growing manufacturing exports and strengthening the area’s long-term economic viability.
New Polyethylene Facility
A second Advanced SCLAIRTECH™ technology facility (AST2) will be located at the new Rokeby Site, adjacent to the Corunna Site. With a capacity of approximately one billion pounds of polyethylene per year, the facility will allow NOVA Chemicals to continue to grow its polyethylene business in high performance applications and will provide greater supply reliability for its customers. Construction is underway with start-up targeted for late 2021.
Corunna Cracker Expansion – Phase Three
This project is linked to the new polyethylene facility as it will provide ethylene feedstock. The expansion will increase the existing unit’s current ethylene capacity by more than 50%, up to the rate currently approved by regulators. Expected completion is targeted for late 2021.
