The Marion County Commission and Development Authority welcomed the Fairmont Brine Processing company to the county.

In a unique business move, the company is set to bring 30 or more jobs to the area once they expand.

The Fairmont Brine Processing plant is set to be an alternative for the management of flowback, and produce water from regional shale sites, and then process so it will have a more environmentally friendly use. According to officials, this process can bring tons of brine and salt into our area for use during the harsh winter months.

"It goes through an initial treatment process which separates out all of the solids, organics, oil and gas and heavy metals and produces a treated brine which can be used in the drilling and fracturing process, as well as de-winterizing," said Brian Colt, Fairmont Brine Processing.

The processing plant is already up and running, but officials say they should start producing salt come the first of May.
