PITTSBURGH — A western Pennsylvania slag recycler has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Pennsylvania.

Glassport, Pa.-based Green Global LLC is managed by Nick Shilatz Jr., who is listed in court documents as managing director of USB LLC. The company, which has been engaged in extracting metals from slag, listed assets of between $100,000 and $500,000 and liabilities of between $1 million and $10 million.

Green Global’s unsecured creditors include the Internal Revenue Service, its landlord, a trucking company and several employees.

Shilatz, who could not be reached for comment, also is facing two lawsuits, and a judgment has been filed against him in a third matter.

Letart, W.Va.-based Felman Production LLC is suing Green Global in U.S. District Court in Pennsylvania for $487,462 for allegedly failing to pay for silicomanganese furnace slag from its New Haven, W.Va., operation.

Sheffield, England-based Westbrook Resources Ltd. is suing Green Global in Allegheny County (Pa.) Court of Common Pleas for more than $351,600 for Westbrook-owned manganese ore that was shipped to a Maryland steel mill.

In 2012, a federal court in Pennsylvania awarded a judgment against Green Global, which also conducts business as Green Global Resources LLC, for $110,735 for failing to pay rental and repair fees on industrial pumps from Bridgeport, N.J.-based Godwin Pumps of America.
