Plastics Technology Park receives grant.

The Polymer Alliance Zone's (PAZ) Technology Park has received a check for $4.3 million from West Virginia's Economic Development Grant Commission.

The development corporation will use the money, along with $100,000 from the zone itself, to purchase a former distribution center. The PAZ will have a 25-year lease and functional control of the building.

The building will serve as an end-of-life electronics recycling center and a recycling research center.

Wood County Commission President Rick Modesitt says the center provides an opportunity for the county to be a leader in what will be a growing industry "that will probably attract business from other states."
