Plans were recently announced to construct a wood pellet plant in George County, Miss. European electric power utilities demand wood pellets and with our abundance of forest products, Mississippi will help meet that demand. Two existing wood pellet mills are in Wiggins and Aberdeen. Set to employ around 30, the George County plant will bring a $25 million investment and is significant in the way it shows European countries taking advantage of Mississippi’s manufacturing capabilities and abundance of resources.
