No incentives were sought for the project.

Koch Industries Seeks Acquisitions
Feb 28 14
Koch Industries, Inc. seeks acquisitions. "Then we’re doing that in our fertilizer business as well, and we’re doing it in Flint Hills with biofuels. So that’s another area that’s a combination of both internal development and acquisitions. Engineering polymers at Invista is another tremendous area. There’s been a lot of work in engineering polymers over the years, but we’ve found some gaps in where these materials can be turned into products and have superior value. I don’t want to get into specifics on those because we’re still in the trial stage on some of them. But that’s another very promising area. Then another one, which involves so much new technology — and not that we would go back into the drilling business — but in support for directional drilling, particularly, and some of it but not all relates to fracking, but directional drilling and services for that and technology for that. Then another is metals. There have been technical and other changes and new approaches in that, so we’re looking at investments in that field as well. And then obviously in consumer products, pulp and paper, we’re continually making acquisitions in that area," said Chief Executive Officer, Charles Koch.
