The explosion killed three employees who were processing titanium powder, which is highly combustible, at the time.

The meeting will begin at noon in the ballroom at the Four Points Sheraton, 600 Kanawha Blvd E. During it, the board also will provide an update on its investigation into the Jan. 9, 2014, tank leak at a Freedom Industries facility.
