Institute, WV -- A chemical manufacturing plant is set to be built to produce methanol next year. The plant will bring 60 jobs to the community.
This plant will temporarily employ 300 workers during construction and create 60 permanent positions in July 2017. CEO, Brad Gunn, said that the company will be deconstructing their methanol plant in Brazil to move it to the U.S.
Gunn went on to say, "We came at this from the gas side of things. There's an awful lot of gas to be marketed and sold in the area. We came at the methanol business from that angle."
The plant will turn methane into pure methanol - which is a base solution for paints, plastics, windshielf washer fluid, and other chemicals.
