Terminal planned at port

Enviva Holdings, producer of industrial wood pellets, is exercising an option with the Jackson County Port Authority to lease property in the Bayou Casotte Harbor in the Port of Pascagoula, Miss. Enviva plans to invest some $60 million to build the terminal, expected to directly employ 30 full-time workers and support about 150 direct and indirect jobs during construction. The Pascagoula terminal will be capable of receiving product by rail, barge, and truck, storing up to 90,000 metric tons of wood pellets on site. The terminal will be used to ship pellets to customers across Europe and Asia. Exercising the lease option allows Enviva to prepare the site for construction of the Pascagoula terminal, which it expects to complete in the second half of 2020.
