ALEXANDRIA, LA-Cool Planet Energy Systems Inc. has unveiled a plan to invest $168 million to build three bio-refineries throughout Louisiana. Specifically, the biomass fuel manufacturing company has targeted Alexandria, Natchitoches and an as-yet undetermined site for modular biomass-to-gasoline refineries; what the company also calls micro-refineries.

The Louisiana Economic Development website indicates Cool Planet will begin construction on its first site, at the Port of Alexandria, in January 2014, with operations beginning later that year. The second bio-refinery, at the Port of Natchitoches, will go north by the summer of 2015, with a scheduled completion date by the summer of 2016. The third site is planned to come online by late 2016.
