According to BCONE, the Keystone Industrial Port Complex (KIPC) has been revitalized through a collaborative effort by US Steel, US EPA, Pennsylvania leadership, & regulatory agencies including PA DEP. The site is now home to a suite of industrial companies, including Osstem, AE Polysilicon, USS Galvanize, Toll Brothers, Dominion Fairless Energy.
This is a site where trash is transformed into energy: Waste Management operates a landfill gas to power plant. Covanta operates a metals processing facility (and soon will add a second facility) that receives and processes scrap metals recovered from the energy from waste (trash to steam) facilities. This site sits alongside the Delaware River, with access to major highways and the northern most docks on the Delaware, 75 miles of internal rail lines that connect to class I rail, and a world class energy system.
