Clough is pleased to announce it has been awarded a Front End Engineering Design (FEED) and Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) bid contract, in partnership with Hyundai Engineering USA, for the Encina Point Township Circular Manufacturing Facility in eastern Pennsylvania.

Encina produces valuable circular chemicals, predominantly benzene, toluene and xylene (BTX) from end-of-life plastics. These chemicals form the basis from which many major consumer products are produced. Using Encina’s proprietary technology, this plant will take 450,000 tons per annum of end-of-life plastic feedstock and convert it into circular BTX. Manufacturers can be responsive to increasing consumer demand for circular and recycled content by seamlessly incorporating these products into their manufacturing processes.

This FEED will leverage Clough’s extensive experience in delivering high quality industrial projects and further enhances our reputation and footprint across North America. Clough and Hyundai are creating synergies with new, innovative companies possessing key eco-friendly technologies and expertise in renewable energy to deliver successful EPC solutions.

“Encina is excited to work with Clough on our Circular Manufacturing Facility in Pennsylvania,” said Shirley Hammond, Vice President of Engineering. “Clough’s ability to manage the technical and commercial aspects during FEED has contributed to the successes of the project as we drive towards our goal to produce circular materials.” 

Adam Stashick, Executive Vice President for Clough in North America stated: “I am very proud of our project team who have worked very closely with Encina and Hyundai Engineering over the last few months to secure this FEED stage.  Our commitment to understanding our client’s drivers and needs have not gone unnoticed and our client is very pleased with our commitment to their project.  I am looking forward to the successful development and delivery of this project and valued partnerships with Encina and Hyundai Engineering.”
