ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel  5) - Governor Bobby Jindal and Cool Planet Energy announced a $168,000,000 investment in Louisiana bio-refineries on Friday.

Cool Planet Energy will build three modular biomass-to-gasoline refineries in the state. One will be in Alexandria and one in Natchitoches. The third location is yet to be determined.

The refineries will harvest wood waste and forest by-products to make gasoline that will be compatible for use in vehicles already on the roadways.

Governor Jindal says, the project will bring big money and big jobs to the area.
