BUFFALO, NY, Nov. 29, 2016 (Buffalo News) -Nearly a year ago, Chemours delivered unwelcome news to the region: The chemical company would close its Niagara Falls plant by the end of 2016, eliminating about 200 jobs.

No buyer stepped forward to keep the former DuPont operation running, and Chemours halted production of reactive metals at the plant at the end of September.

The site still has 85 employees responsible for decommissioning and decontaminating equipment, said Robin Ollis Stemple, a spokeswoman for Delaware-based Chemours. That number will drop to 35 employees by year's end; the last day of work for the remaining employees has not been set.
