A Raleigh-based company is investing $33 million into a new facility near Stantonsburg that is slated to employ up to 15 people within 18 months.
Green Energy Sustainable Solutions International has been around for nearly two decades, focusing on using renewable energy sources such as solar and biogas. Crews will break ground on the Stantonsburg facility at 2 p.m. Thursday at 6425 Woodbridge Road.
Once complete, the facility will process 190,000 tons of swine and poultry waste and 80,000 tons of agricultural residue to produce a clean, renewable natural gas that can be sold to energy companies and converted to electricity.
“We are pleased to bring this renewable energy process to Wilson County and look forward to partnering with them to create solutions that benefit local farmers as well as provide affordable energy solutions to providers and ultimately, consumers,” said GESS CEO Shaun Lee.
