Dow to Expand Institute Plant

Dow Chemical is looking to expand a section of its Institute plant.

The company wouldn't say how much they are spending, but a spokewoman for Senator Jay Rockefeller said it could reach $20-million.

The money will be used to increase the production of a thickening agent called Cellosize.

It's used in latex paints, building materials and cleaning products.

The expansion will not mean any additional hiring.
