New York State Senator Timothy M. Kennedy recently toured JBI facility

On October 7, 2011, New York State Senator Timothy M. Kennedy (D-58th District) visited JBI, Inc.’s Plastic2Oil facility in Niagara Falls, NY. Senator Kennedy was joined by Nick Dhimitri, his Legislative Director, Rachel Homewood, his District Office Director as well as Bonnie Lockwood, Senior Field Representative for Congressman Brian Higgins (D-NY27) and New York State Assembly candidate (D-145th District), Chris Fahey.

John Bordynuik personally led a tour of the facility, providing an explanation about JBI, Inc.’s P20 technology that also detailed the evolution of the processor’s design.

The visit provided Bordynuik an opportunity to raise awareness about the P20 technology. He received vast support from Senator Kennedy who was able to witness first-hand the local impact JBI, Inc. was contributing to the economy.

“I was blown away by my tour of JBI. The technology is unlike anything I had ever seen,” stated Senator Kennedy. “This energy innovation is opening the door to tremendous opportunities for Western New York. The jobs that will be created will help spur economic growth while at the same time expanding and further anchoring a well-established business and technology in the Empire State.”

As a green technology advocate, Senator Kennedy has sponsored legislation that has been instrumental in helping JBI, Inc. develop its local, green workforce. The occasion marked Senator Kennedy’s first visit to the P20 facility. The staff at JBI, Inc. would like to extend their appreciation to Senator Kennedy and his colleagues for visiting the facility and for their support.
