A news release Friday from the Kanawha County Commission says the layoffs are planned at the Chemours plant in Belle.

The company formed as a spinoff from DuPont in 2015 and currently employs 207 people at the facility along the Kanawha River.

The commission says the 57 positions being eliminated are in methylamines and methylamides production.

The commission says the company has pointed to increased costs to export raw materials needed for production.
