Biomass plant planned in Vidalia

Hinterland LLC is planning a $100 million-plus, 50-job biomass facility in the 130-acre Vidalia Industrial Park.

“We are excited to announce and welcome Hinterland LLC as our newest resident in the Vidalia Industrial Park,” said Vidalia Mayor Hyram Copeland said in a news release.

The site has direct access to the Vidalia Port, which is under development.

“The efforts by Mayor Copeland and the Vidalia Town Council, the Concordia Parish Economic Development Office and state of Louisiana have made the Vidalia Industrial Park an attractive location to bring new investment into the area,” said Sue Wells, managing member of Hinterland LLC.
