All pending appeals to Pittsburgh Corning’s reorganization plan regarding previous asbestos claims have been withdrawn, PPG announced.

Under the Pittsburgh Corning Plan, confirmed by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania in May 2013, PPG Industries and Corning Inc. will pay out millions of dollar in asbestos claims via a trust fund. According to the Pittsburgh Post Gazette, “more than 400,000 lawsuits were filed against Pittsburgh Corning by individuals who alleged they had cancer and other diseases caused by a pipe insulation containing asbestos that the company made from 1964 to 1972.”

PPG and its participating insurers will make initial contributions to the trust within 30 business days after the plan becomes effective and all conditions to funding have been met. The company anticipates funding will take place in the first half of 2016.

PPG and Corning Inc. are each 50-percent shareholders of Pittsburgh Corning, which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in 2000.
