Biofuel plant to bring more than 100 jobs to Dooly County | News
A biofuel plant is coming to Dooly County.
U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack made the announcement Thursday. A news release states the company, Ensyn Georgia Biorefinery, will be bringing approximately 138 jobs to the county. A lot of the jobs, the release states, requires specialized skills. The plant will produce 20 million gallons of renewable fuel per year.
Ensyn, the release states, will convert 440 dry tons of woody biomass into a renewable fuel oil product. The oil will be used as a heating oil replacement and as a renewable feed stock of diesel and gasoline production at refineries.
"We welcome these high skilled jobs," Dooly County Commission Chairman Terrell Hudson said in a statement. "It will really be a boost to our area."
