News: CH·IV International awarded Owner’s Engineering contract for Encina’s Circular Manufacturing Facility

CH·IV International is pleased to announce the award of its comprehensive Owner’s Engineering (OE) Services by Encina Development Group for the Point Township Circular Manufacturing Facility in Northumberland County, Pennsylvania.  CH·IV has been providing permitting advisory and management services to the project since 2022. The OE award extends the scope to additionally providing engineering oversight, risk management, commercial, and project services support to the project development team throughout the project lifecycle.

Encina manufactures drop-in circular chemicals using an integrated single-stage catalytic conversion process that takes hard-to-recycle plastics and transforms them into their base building blocks that customers can use to make new consumer products. This process can be repeated over and over. The innovative solution will allow Encina’s flagship Point Township facility to divert up to 450,000 tons of previously non-recyclable waste materials every year from landfills, incinerators, streets, and waterways.

Mona Setoodeh, President of CH·IV International, stated: “We are pleased to be working with Encina Development Group in this extended capacity.  Our relationship with Encina is built on our core philosophy of ‘Protecting our Client’s Investment’, which sets us apart.  Our team is comprised of highly knowledgeable experts who take the time to understand our client’s needs first, then implement industry-leading strategies, solutions, and expertise to oversee a project through to successful completion, while always keeping our client’s interests a top priority.  Additionally, the scope of work CH·IV is leading on Encina’s Circular Manufacturing Facility aligns with our company’s ambition of supporting the reduction of international waste and contributing to a more sustainable future.”

Shirley Hammond, Encina’s Vice President of Engineering, said: “We are excited to have awarded CH·IV International with the comprehensive OE Services for our flagship Circular Manufacturing Facility in Pennsylvania. CH·IV’s commitment to protecting our investment, their industry-leading strategies, and expertise in overseeing projects to successful completion, align with Encina’s vision to deliver a world-class facility.
