Gov. Edwards announces economic development plan in Caldwell Parish



CALDWELL PARISH, La. – On April 23, 2021, Governor John Bel Edwards and CEO Paul Schubert of Strategic Biofuels LLC announced that the company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Louisiana Green Fuels, plans to develop a renewable diesel plant near the Caldwell Parish seat of Columbia.

According to a press release from the governor’s office, the plant would produce up to 32 million gallons of renewable fuel annually through established refinery processes with wood waste as the feedstock.

The company is completing feasibility and financing phases for the project in anticipation of a final investment decision by late 2022.
