Saint-Gobain will spend $100 million to build a proppants plant in Saline County, Ark. To be constructed on a 70-acre parcel of land, the facility will eventually provide jobs for 140 people, the company says. Proppants are spherical beads about the size of a grain of sand that are used to prop open underground fractures created in oil and gas drilling.
