Central Alberta Branch: NOVA Chemicals, Joffre Site Visit

2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Register by October 20, 2017

NOVA Chemicals' Joffre manufacturing facility lies just east of Red Deer, Alberta and is one the largest ethylene and polyethylene production complexes in the world. The site actually consists of five manufacturing facilities: three for ethylene production and two for polyethylene production. NOVA Chemicals is the largest polyethylene producer in Canada, of which the Joffre Site produces 2.2 billion pounds. Polyethylene is shipped via rail and road to North American customers and by ship for offshore destinations. We directly employ more than 700 employees.

The plant tour for APEGA members will give an opportunity to attend a brief presentation on NOVA chemicals, ask questions to site leadership representatives, and a conducted tour around the plant facilities giving that opportunity for a closer look at the facilities.
