Eco-Energy is developing an ethanol unit train and storage facility to serve the Atlanta, Georgia, US, market area.

The ethanol unit train terminal, through the use of its automated loading system, will be able to distribute over 400,000 barrels per month.

The facility will be equipped to receive about 96 rail car unit trains via the CSX railroad and will have about 200,000 barrels of ethanol tank storage.

Operations at the site are expected to start in the second quarter of next year, and the unit will offer 24/7 product access to its terminal customers.

Eco-Energy CFO / COO Gwaine Ton said Atlanta is a growing market and the project reflects the company’s 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," Ton said.

The project is being developed in conjunction with the Cartersville-Bartow County, Georgia, Department of Economic Development.

Eco-Energy is a midstream alternative energy company focused on the marketing, trading, transportation, and distribution of bio-fuels across the globe.
