Enerkem Inc. spokeswoman Annie Pare tells The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal (http://bit.ly/WCsH7v ) the company remains committed to building the for Enerkem Mississippi Biofuels plant.
It's planned as a $100 million project with 70 employees, with a $150 million expansion to produce another 80 jobs.
So far, a lot has been cleared for a power substation but the 35-acre site for the plant itself is still all woods.
Enerkem bought the site in October for about $70,000, paying another $10,000 for the timber's value.
Pare says the plant is being designed. She says construction is expected to begin in the second half of this year and should take about 18 months.
