US biofuels marketing, trading and transportation firm Eco-Energy said on Monday that it has started developing an ethanol unit train and storage terminal in the area of Atlanta, Georgia.
The new facility will have a capacity to distribute more than 400,000 barrels of ethanol a month. Thanks to its connection to the CSX railroad, the terminal will be able to receive up to 96 rail car units and will feature a 200,000-barrel ethanol tank storage.
The facility is expected to enter into operation in the second quarter of 2013.
Eco-Energy is developing the project in co-operation with the Department of Economic Development at the Cartersville-Bartow County, Georgia.
