Governor’s Weekly Message Transcript: Improving Quality of Life While Supporting the Economy

Former Governor Jack Markell (2009-2017) | News | Date Posted: Friday, March 15, 2013




Earlier this week, Governor Markell and I had the chance to visit Evraz Steel right here in Claymont.  We announced one of the largest investments to improve this great facility: reduce the particulate emissions by 99%.  What that means is all the dust that used to come from this plant that would affect the local community or affect the workers here is now actually being captured by this great facility right here.  It was a multi-million dollar investment and it’s going to improve the quality of life for local residents, improve the quality of life for the workers, increase the productivity and make this plant much more competitive for decades to come.  So, it’s really an example of how we can have a strong manufacturing sector and at the same time have a very healthy economy.  The air is going to be cleaner, the work force is going to be stronger and the economy is going to be better for it.  So, right here from Claymont, Delaware, Delaware is moving forward.
