Logan Aluminum Inc., a manufacturer of aluminum sheet, has completed work on a new $30 million aluminum recycling center at its facility in Russellville. The new facility enables the company to receive and melt scrap aluminum such as used beverage cans and painted siding and completely eliminates the need for the company to ship in molten aluminum to produce its rolled aluminum sheets. “This particular furnace technology has been used extensively in Europe and has proven to be one of the best environmental choices available anywhere in the world,” said Dave Davis, remelt unit manager at Logan, noting that this is the first time the technology has been introduced in the United States. “The innovative design of the furnace provides high metal yields with lower energy demands, resulting in significantly reduced air emissions.”
Construction has begun on Saint Joseph-London’s (formerly Marymount Medical Center) new $150 million hospital, which is slated to open by the spring of 2010. The 321,000-s.f. facility will house 120 beds and will feature all private rooms.
