SAN ANTONIO - Skyonic Corp. broke ground on the Northeast Side for Capitol SkyMine, a $126 million chemical plant. The facility is being built adjacent to the Capitol Aggregates cement plant at 11551 Nacogdoches Rd.

The plant, which is the first of its kind in the United States, is expected to capture 300,000 tons of CO2 annually through the direct capture of 75,000 tons and additional 225,000 tons that will be offset by the production of green products.

The facility will convert a portion of the carbon dioxide emissions from the Capitol Aggregates Inc. cement plant into minerals that will be converted into products to be sold on the open market.

The Capitol SkyMine plant will employ about 35 workers and is expected to create more than 200 jobs through the plant's construction and on-going operations.

Capitol SkyMine is scheduled for completion in late 2014.
