SOUTH CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) β€” A shuttered FMC Corp. hydrogen peroxide plant in South Charleston is being torn down.

FMC stopped production in 2003. The plant remained open as a distribution site until 2008.

FMC environmental manager Jim Bodamer tells the Charleston Gazette (http://bit.ly/O7c52L ) that asbestos removal has been completed. The next step is to remove the plant's equipment.

The demolition is expected to be completed in May 2013. Once the plant is torn down, FMC will clean up the 40-acre site, which Bodamer says could take until 2014 to complete.

FMC plans to sell the property after the cleanup is finished.
