ABERDEEN,  Miss. (WCBI) -- Aberdeen has closed a deal that could bring as many as 100 new jobs and a biofuels manufacturer to the city.

Birmingham-based SPW and Associates signed papers today agreeing to buy a site at the city-owned port to build the new plant. The company and its partner, Centra Energy, say it will take as long as a year to get the proper environmental permits and financing to start building. Construction could take another 18 months.For Aberdeen, it's good news to bring life to the city's port.

"We formally signed a contract today which they are planning to purchase some property on our port and open up a facility," said Mayor Cecil Belle.

 The company hopes to develop several plants around the country that will develop feedstocks into alternative fuels.
