Voestalpine, the Austrian company that’s building an iron smelting plant near Corpus Christi Bay in Portland, donated $1,500 today to Skip the Plastic. State-of-the-art technologies will help the plant to significantly minimize water demand, reduce the amount of waste produced and hopefully achieve the goal of zero air emissions. With a strong focus on the environment and sustainability, Voestlapine is setting the bar for other Coastal Bend companies.
