SALINA, Kan. (AP) -- Construction is expected to begin next year on a new research facility in Salina dedicated to studying the science of transporting bulk solids.

The Salina Journal (http://bit.ly/18PRF5H ) reports the project was announced this week after four years of planning. It's a collaboration among Kansas State University, the Chamber of Commerce, the city of Salina, private companies and K-Tron Salina.

California-based K-Tron is an international material-handling company. K-Tron Salina donated the land for the 17,000-square-foot Salina project.

The Salina Bulk Solids Innovation Center is expected to benefit industries that use and make conveyance systems for such material as sugar, starch, minerals, chemicals and plastic pellets.

Businesses and Kansas State students and researchers will work at the center.
