WERNERSVILLE, Pa. (AP) -

A Canadian company has submitted plans to build an eastern Pennsylvania facility that would convert natural gas to such as gasoline and propane.

The Reading Eagle reports that Calgary-based EmberClear Corp. wants to build the facility on 63 acres in South Heidelberg Township.

The township's planning commission is to consider preliminary approval for the project during a meeting Tuesday night.

Township manager Ron Seaman says the firm estimates that the project could cost $850 million to $1 billion and take three years to complete.

He said 900 to 1,200 people could be employed during construction and 80 to 100 workers would operate the plant once it is built.

The firm says on its website that it builds facilities to convert natural gas into transportation fuels or electricity.
