Wood pellet facility on the increase for GCRE
Waste heat-to-power equipment supplier Gulf Coast Renewable Energy (GCRE) reveals it is to double capacity at its wood pellet manufacturing plant in Georgia, US.
A new facility earmarked for Copiah County has also been mooted and both projects should make a combined total of 80 new jobs.
The original facility in Lucedale will double its pellet capacity from 160,000 to 320,000 tonnes and the new one will join it at that higher capacity straight off the bat.
GCRE’s investment into the Lucedale operation will now go from $25 million (€19.4 million) to $40 million.
