As a starting step the two companies will combine to acquire the North Carolina Biomass/Wood Pellet Plant as a precursor to developing multifunctional energy centers in Alabama.

The energy center is to be located at the Green Mountain landfill site and will house waste-tire-to-energy, municipal-waste-to-energy, and biomass for energy production plants.

3P Energy will bring the expertise required to build a wind power plant at the site.

GreenWorld CEO Leo J. Heinl said that the companies have come together after recognizing mutual synergies – concentration on renewable energy.

"This strategic alliance with 3Power further demonstrates our commitment to the growth of our company to deliver shareholder value," added GreenWorld Director of Mergers & Acquisitions Niall Shanahan.
