CLEARFIELD – Plans are under review for a new industry coming to Clearfield Borough.
At Thursday’s Clearfield Borough Council meeting, Code Enforcement Officer Larry Mack said the land development plans for Continental Carbonic will be reviewed by the Planning Commission at their regular meeting Monday. The plans will then be reviewed by the borough’s engineers before final approval.
“I know they’re (Continental Carbonic) very anxious to get started and we’re excited to have them,” Mack said.
According to previous GANT News articles, the council voted to approve consolidating three lots on Technology Drive. The lots, formerly Fulesday Machine Shop, the Clearfield County Area Agency on Aging Meals on Wheels property and a parking lot are owned by the Pennsylvania Grain Processing ethanol plant. The consolidation will allow PGP to lease the property to Continental Carbonic.
Continental Carbonic plans to build a facility next to the PGP plant to capture the carbon dioxide emissions produced by the PGP plant and will turn the CO2 into dry ice.
