ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Albany-Dougherty Economic Commission made its second-to-last stop on the 'Made in Albany' campaign on Wednesday.

It showcased the newly completed Albany Green Energy facility, a Biomass Energy Plant next to Procter & Gamble.

EDC President Justin Strickland said the facility is on the cutting edge of energy manufacturing.

Right now the plant provides steam for P & G. It will soon provide steam for the Marine Corps Logistics Base as well.

"Having that kind of incredible facility that stabilizes P & G's steam energy requirement and puts energy back on the grid shows that Green Energy works in Southwest Georgia," said Strickland.

The plant burns waste pine products from a 60-mile radius to make the energy.
