West Virginia Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin announced Thursday that a new plant is coming to Jackson County that will provide at least 60 new jobs and an investment of tens of millions of dollars.

At a news conference, the governor said Carbonyx will be locating a new facility that will make use of a state-of-the-art coke substitute with a carbon alloy that uses coal material.

"This is truly a great day for Jackson County and the state of West Virginia," the governor said.

Tomblin said since the 1600s, iron and steel have relied on coke in the steel making process, but environmental regulations in the United States have made that challenging. He said it was fitting that a company that boldly has found a new use for coal is building an "environmentally friendly" facility in West Virginia in Jackson County.

Attached to this story is the raw footage of that news conference.
