United States Vice President Joseph Biden To Visit Great Lakes Bay Region

United States Vice President Joseph R. Biden, Jr. will be in the Great Lakes Bay Region on Tuesday to discuss how The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 investments are improving communities and creating jobs in Saginaw and across the state of Michigan.

The Vice President will be joined by Administrator of the Small Business Administration Karen Mills and Michigan Senator Carl Levin to deliver remarks at Delta College.

Vice President Biden will be touring the chemical processing simulation lab at Delta College, which trains people for jobs at Dow Corning and Hemlock Semiconductor Group, as well as for other companies in the region. The simulation lab features process equipment similar to what is seen in many Dow Corning and Hemlock Semiconductor manufacturing sites. In fact, much of the equipment was donated by Dow Corning.

In December 2009, the White House announced that Dow Corning and the Hemlock Semiconductor will receive approximately $169 million in Recovery Act Advanced Energy Manufacturing Tax Credits for investments supporting the growing solar technology industry.

The tax credits include $141.9 million for Hemlock Semiconductor's recently announced expansion of its Michigan polycrystalline silicon operations, and $27.3 million for a monosilane manufacturing plant Dow Corning currently has under construction.

"These manufacturing tax credits are a critical step in establishing new clean-technology manufacturing jobs to the United States," said Stephanie A. Burns. "This bold investment will propel America into an era of sustained, renewable energy use and help put Americans back to work."

"Green jobs are real, and this announcement shows that the United States is serious about becoming a global leader in alternative energy technologies," said Rick Doornbos, Hemlock Semiconductor president and CEO. "Hemlock Semiconductor is creating more than 1500 jobs while investing billions of dollars in Michigan and Tennessee and will continue to grow as the country and world commit to a clean energy future."
