DECATUR, Ala. (AP) - A Texas-based company says an expansion at a plant in north Alabama will increase production and reduce pollution. Ascend Performance Materials announced plans Monday for a $175 million project in the Tennessee Valley city of Decatur. The state and local governments are providing incentives for the company to expand and increase production of a compound used to make plastics. The construction project will create about 150 jobs, and the plant will employ an additional 10 people once production expands. A company statement says the work will decrease emissions by 60%.
