ROLLA, Mo. (AP) - The Missouri University of Science and Technology is celebrating the opening of a new chemical and biochemical engineering building.

A public dedication for the James E. Bertelsmeyer Hall is scheduled for Friday on the Rolla campus.

Its namesake is a graduate of Missouri S&T; - formerly known as the University of Missouri-Rolla - who founded Heritage Propane Partners in Tulsa, Okla. Bertelsmeyer donated $5 million toward the construction of the $22.3 million building. The building includes laboratories, lecture halls and office space.

The dedication will include remarks from Bertelsmeyer and Missouri S&T; Chancellor Cheryl B. Schrader. There also will be building tours and a fireworks display.
