"The proposed Florence facility will be the most innovative battery recycling

Power Solutions. "Our closed-loop system is state-of-the-art in terms of
environmental controls, conforming well within all federal, state and local
environmental regulations."

"In today's highly competitive global economy, our state's ability to attract
new jobs and investment is critical. Today's announcement is certainly an
indication of our success in that regard. As well, this news is a reminder of
the importance of focusing our efforts on improving the business climate here
with fundamental reforms that encourage economic growth. We remain committed to
continuing these efforts to encourage growth and create opportunity for more
South Carolinians while helping companies like Johnson Controls be more
competitive during these challenging times," said Gov. Mark Sanford.

Johnson Controls of new facility in Florence will include plans to develop about
36 acres for its facility and parking, leaving the remaining acreage
undeveloped. Portions of the site will be permanently protected through a
conservation easement.
