Corning Inc. recently celebrated the opening of its new, US$77 million environmental technologies production facility in Shanghai, China. The new plant will help meet global demand for products that clean emissions from motor vehicles. The ceremony took place at the new facility in Pudong, Shanghai, where construction started two years ago. The wholly owned Corning operation produces ceramic catalytic converter substrates for use in automobiles and trucks. Shipments of these clean-air products began in early 2001.

"It is hard to imagine a technology that has done more to clean the air than the catalytic converter," said Roger G. Ackerman, Corning's chairman. "The employees at this new plant will have reason to be proud of the products they will make, because the substrates manufactured here in Shanghai will contribute to cleaner air around the world."
