Stephenson County's ethanol plant has reached an agreement with local unions on the construction of a pollution control device.

Adkins Energy says it will use laborers from the Northwestern Illinois Building Trades Council to build a $1.7 million air scrubber to cut down on pollution.

The Illinois Environmental Protection Agency is still reviewing the proposal.

Construction will begin once the IEPA gives its approval.
