Greentech Lead America: Eco-Energy, an alternative energy
company that distributes bio-fuels across the globe, is developing an ethanol
unit train and storage facility to serve the Atlanta, GA market area.
The ethanol unit train terminal will utilize an automated
loading system and will have a capacity to distribute over 400,000 barrels
(16.8M gallons) per month. The facility will be equipped to receive up to 96
rail car unit trains via the CSX railroad and will have approximately 200,000
barrels (8.4M gallons) of ethanol tank storage.
“Atlanta is a growing market and this project reflects
our continued investment in delivering optimal low-cost supply chain solutions
to bio-fuel producers and end users. We also intend to further develop the site
to service other industrial related businesses seeking longer-term supply chain
solutions,” said Gwaine Ton, CFO / COO, Eco-Energy.
The project is being developed in conjunction with the
Cartersville-Bartow County, GA Department of Economic Development and expected
to commence operations in the second quarter of 2013.
