Alternative recycler has shifted its focus to Akron and has its sights set on the purchase of 5.1 acres of city-owned land

artworks-000017493763-8jcv5w-cropCLEVELAND — “Vadxx Energy LLC, a Cleveland-based alternative recycler that turns polyolefin waste into fuel, is abandoning its plans for a much-debated Cleveland plant and instead setting its sights on Akron.

The city of Akron plans to enter into a development agreement with Vadxx, a move that Russell Cooper, vice president of business development, said shows its ‘enthusiastic support’ for the company. In turn, he said Vadxx is giving its full attention to the new location and doing away with plans to put a site in Cleveland.

Akron’s planning commission is scheduled to discuss the sale of 5.1 acres of city-owned land at 1200 E. Waterloo Road at its next regular meeting, at 9 a.m. this Friday, Aug. 16. Mr. Cooper said Vadxx already has been changing its permits and redoing the design for the new space.”
