Arclin Receives Permit for Formaldehyde Production Facility in Sexsmith, AB

    MISSISSAUGA, Ontario, Oct. 15 /CNW/ -- Arclin announced today that they
have recently received approval from the Alberta Natural Resources
Conservation Board for a new formaldehyde production plant in Sexsmith
Alberta, concluding that the project would be in Alberta's public interest.
    "This is exciting news", says Claudio D'Ambrosio, President and CEO of
Arclin.  "Having the ability to produce our own formaldehyde will further
complement the world class resin facility recently completed by eliminating
the reliance on out-sourced formaldehyde.  Although start up operations are
still suspended due to market conditions, Arclin will be well positioned to
serve the forest products, oilfield chemicals, natural resources and
agricultural markets in western Canada, once economic conditions improve."
    Arclin continues to support the region out of its Kamloops BC and Thunder
Bay, ON facilities and has recently installed a new rail spur in Thunder Bay
to further aid in the Sexsmith expansion.
