Nuclear Energy Consultant speaks at CFCC

Wednesday, October 23rd, 2013

WILMINGTON, NC, (WWAY) — A special guest spoke to Cape Fear Community College Students about nuclear energy. Margaret Harding has been in the industry for thirty years. She’s now a consultant in the field and a professor for engineering at Iowa State University.

She was called upon by NBC, FOX, CNN and the New York Times in the aftermath of the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster. Harding says the tragedy helps us prepare for the future.

“The industry looks at these kinds of things and says, what can we do to make sure a similar event doesn’t happen?” Harding asked. “What could happen at our facilities? We’re looking at how the Japanese responded to the event, and saying how could we have done better?”

Harding says the recent reported violations at the Brunswick Nuclear Plant helps improve the Plant’s practices and that no one should be worried.

Owens Corning materials plant in NC to employ 110

Wednesday, October 23rd, 2013

GASTONIA, N.C. (AP) – Construction and industrial-materials company Owens Corning plans to build a new building materials plant in North Carolina that’s scheduled to employ 110 workers in about three years.

Gov. Pat McCrory’s office said Tuesday the company plans to invest more than $120 million in a glass fiber factory in Gastonia expected to be ready in about a year.

Local business recruiters say the company could get property tax breaks and real estate worth more than $13 million. State officials said the project could get almost $2 million more in tax breaks and worker training if it meets hiring and investment targets.

Toledo, Ohio-based Owens Corning had sales of more than $5 billion in 2012 and employs 15,000 employees in 27 countries.
