Eramet praised for $150M proposal


MARIETTA — “This weekend’s announcement by Eramet Marietta CEO Frank Bjorklund, outlining the company’s vision to improve the local plant’s environmental and operational performance at an estimated cost of $150 million, has received good reviews from environmental and economic perspectives. ‘The important point is to recognize their intention,’ said Melissa English, Southern Ohio program director for Ohio Citizen Action. ‘Our goal is to get them to state what their intentions are, but this is unprecedented, really,’ she said. ‘Not only did they run a full-page ad in newspapers, they also outlined a plan and even attached a dollar figure.'”
