Eco-Energy, an alternative energy company, says it is to build an ethanol unit train and storage facility which will distribute biofuels to the Atlanta, Georgia area in the US.
The train terminal will be able to distribute more than 400,000 barrels of ethanol a month, using its automated loading system.
The rail system will be able to receive up to 96 rail car unit trains through the CSX railroad and the terminal will also feature 200,000 barrels of storage.
The facility is expected to come online in the second quarter of 2013.
The project is being built with the Cartersville-Bartow County Department of Economic Development.
‘Atlanta is a growing market and this project reflects our continued investment in delivering optimal low-cost supply chain solutions to biofuel producers and end users. We also intend to further develop the site to service other industrial related businesses seeking longer term supply chain solutions,’ says Gwaine Ton, Eco-Energy’s CFO.
