Kimberly-Clark invests $150 million for energy efficiency
Kimberly-Clark Corp. will invest $150 million on infrastructure upgrades including the installation of a natural gas-fired plant that will replace a coal-fired co-generation power plant at its Chester, Pa. facility. The new plant is expected to be more energy efficient and will reduce emissions.
A report from the Philadelphia Business Journal said the company received $6 million from the state’s Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program to finance the new plant. The Chester facility has made Scott 1000 toilet paper for the North American market for more than a century.
"Kimberly-Clark continues to fulfill its commitment to reinvesting in our U.S. business," said Adrian Poretti, vice president of supply chain for Kimberly-Clark North America, in a statement. "So far this year, we’ve announced investments in three of our North American mills, including here in Chester, making important improvements to support our overall growth."
