A Niagara Falls plant, whose odoriferous emissions have drawn the ire of nearby residents and the state Department of Environmental Conservation, has received a grant of more than $2 million from another state agency.

The grant to Cascades Containerboard Packaging will pay most of the cost of a project to refine the gases generated by the plant's wastewater treatment process, so those gases can be burned as fuel to help power the plant.
