Synergy is the key for Cornerstone Chemical Company

For some companies, it’s all about the relationships. Figuring out how products, co-products and recoverable spent products can fit together in the most efficient way. Understanding which processes can be tweaked to better fit within the overall vision for a plant. Cooperating with other organizations to ensure mutually beneficial results. It takes hard work, dedication and initiative—three qualities that the staff at Cornerstone Chemical’s Waggaman, La., facility has shown, time and again, since the opening of the facility 60.
