Cool Planet Small Scale biorefineries Developers New Biorefinery Plant in Alexandria, Louisiana US

ALEXANDRIA, US: Cool Planet Energy Systems, a developer of small scale biorefineries which convert non-food biomass into gasoline, jet fuel, and soil enhancing biochar, announced the location of their first commercial biorefinery in Alexandria, Louisiana, US. The construction is expected to be complete before the end of 2014.

The location provides access to an abundance of renewable biomass feedstock, the ability to load fuel onto barges, rail lines and trucks, and excellent local talent to operate the facility.

“Louisiana is known for its substantial oil interests, but now will also have the distinction of being home to the first, of what is planned to become many, production facilities for Cool Planet’s renewable, high-performance gasoline and soil enhancing biochar. Our goal for the Alexandria facility is to be economically competitive with conventional fuels made from non-renewable crude oil,” said Howard Janzen, CEO, Cool Planet Energy Systems.
