WESTON (WKOW) -- Several hundred construction jobs are coming to central Wisconsin, thanks to a new emission control system being built in Weston.
Wisconsin Public Service Corporation says the $275 million project will result in a cleaner, more efficient way to burn coal. The technology scrubs sulfur, nitrous dioxides and mercury from the gases formed by burning coal.
Reports say the utility company hopes to take the sulfuric acid and sell it to local vendors for use in batteries, fertilizers and even in the food production industry.
