WEST TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) -- A bill that has passed at the Indiana Senate could give this place a new life.
The project could cost about $450 million.
The new purpose of this area would be to produce anhydrous ammonia and store carbon underground.
That will make this a fertilizer plant.
This project could bring hundreds of jobs to the Wabash Valley.
It would create about 500 jobs for the construction part of the project and about 120 permanent jobs once it's open.
Mark Swaner, business manager at plumbing and steamfitting local 157 said about 100 of his workers would benefit.
"This means you know a job creation for the Wabash Valley and for the plumbers and steamfitters here in Terre Haute," Swaner said. "This is one of the most positive things we've had come to our area in some time."
Now, that bill is on it's way to the house for a vote there.
