Governor Phil Bryant and officials from Drax Biomass International Inc. have announced the company is planning to construct a 450,000 metric ton per year wood pellet production facility in Gloster, Mississippi, in Amite County.

The facility, to be known as Amite BioEnergy, represents a substantial multi-million dollar investment by the company and will create 45 direct jobs, as well as additional indirect jobs during construction and in the transportation and forestry sectors once the plant is operational.

Drax Biomass is a development and operating company focused on manufacturing wood pellets for renewable, low-carbon power generation from sustainable biomass. The company is a wholly-owned United States subsidiary of Drax Group plc, a major electricity generator in the United Kingdom with a commitment to producing renewable power.

“I am delighted Drax Biomass has selected southwest Mississippi for its planned new wood pellet production facility,” Governor Phil Bryant said. “I know our state’s plentiful resources, friendly business climate and dedicated workforce will serve Drax Biomass well, and I am proud to welcome Drax Biomass as our state’s newest corporate citizen.”
