New 'green energy' plants for 3 La. locations

ALEXANDRIA, La. (AP) — A Denver-based company called Cool Planet Energy Systems plans three Louisiana projects that will create 72 new jobs.

Cool Planet announced the plans Friday for bio-refineries in Alexandria, Natchitoches and a site still to be determined. The company plans to use harvest wood waste and forest byproducts to make gasoline. Cool Planet also will market a byproduct from its refining process that will be used as an agricultural supplement to boost water retention and carbon released from crops.

Gov. Bobby Jindal was in Alexandria for Friday's announcement at the Alexandria Musuem of Art.
