ALEXANDRIA, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - Cool Planet Energy Systems will begin construction soon on its alternative fuel production facility at the Port of Alexandria.

Company officials and Gov. Bobby Jindal were in town Wednesday for a ground-breaking ceremony for the plant - Cool Planet's first commercial production facility.

Cool Planet's technology converts biomass such as wood products into high-octane gasoline and an agricultural-enhancement product known as biochar.

The Alexandria plant is one of three Cool Planet has committed to building in Louisiana. The second will be located in Natchitoches. The location of the third has not been determined.
