Clean Vision Corporation, a company specializing in sustainable clean technology and green energy, has recently signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) with the West Virginia Department of Economic Development (WVDED). The agreement will enable Clean Vision’s subsidiary, Clean-Seas West Virginia, to establish a manufacturing facility in West Virginia. The facility will focus on converting plastic feedstock into precursors for recycled content plastics and clean fuels like hydrogen.

The MoA includes over $12 million in state incentives, with $1.75 million provided as forgivable loans and the rest in tax and employment incentives. The Project, anticipated to result in capital investments of at least $50 million, is expected to create a minimum of 40 full-time jobs.

West Virginia Governor Jim Justice expressed pride in the state becoming Clean-Seas’ first facility in the United States and the mid-Atlantic hub of its Plastic Conversion Network. He emphasized the state’s commitment to innovative and financially viable technologies that support a clean economy.

Dan Bates, CEO of Clean Vision, expressed excitement about helping West Virginia become a leader in clean energy. He commended the collaboration with WVDED, emphasizing the shared commitment to delivering sustainable solutions that positively impact the environment and contribute to West Virginia’s economic growth.

The state of West Virginia will provide $1.75 million in forgivable, performance-based loans to support the completion of the project, in addition to other qualifying tax credits and incentives. The Secretary of WVDED, Mitch Carmichael, highlighted Clean Vision’s commitment to clean energy and welcomed them to the state. Carmichael expressed optimism about the project’s potential to bring long-term, well-paying jobs to West Virginia in the growing 21st-century industry.

Once construction is complete, the facility plans to process 100 tons of plastic per day, starting in 2024, with a future goal of scaling up to 500 tons per day. The project aims to convert plastic waste into clean energy, contributing to a sustainable future while mitigating the harmful effects of plastic pollution.

Clean Vision sees West Virginia as an ideal location to expand its Plastic Conversion Network both domestically and globally. The funding provided by the state will enhance the company’s return on investment for the facility, benefitting stakeholders and the residents of West Virginia. The project is expected to bring employment opportunities, industry growth, and next-generation sustainable clean energy while combating plastic pollution.

Clean Vision is a public company focused on sustainable clean technology and green energy sectors. Clean-Seas, a subsidiary of Clean Vision, is dedicated to providing efficient and cost-effective technology solutions to address the global plastic crisis, creating economic opportunities, and social benefits worldwide.
