Nova slows projects due to COVID-19

Nova Chemicals is slowing work on its Canadian projects because of COVID-19. In Ontario, where Nova is expanding an ethylene cracker by 50% and building a polyethylene plant, the firm will limit construction to “the most critical work.” That means a 90% workforce reduction at the site. The projects had been scheduled for completion by 2022; Nova says it can’t yet say how long they will be delayed. The company has also paused the refurbishment of a furnace at its complex in Alberta.

C&EN has made this story and all of its coverage of the coronavirus epidemic freely available during the outbreak to keep the public informed. To support our journalism, become a member of ACS or sign up for C&EN's weekly newsletter.
