Enviva breaks ground

PASCAGOULA, Miss. - Ground was broken on a new marine export terminal in the Port of Pascagoula’s Bayou Casotte Harbor. The ceremony marks the beginning of construction of the $90 million Enviva terminal. Wood pellets produced in George County, Miss., and other Enviva plants in the Gulf region will be exported through the Pascagoula Terminal to markets in Asia and Europe. Construction will begin in the next few weeks and will take 15 months to complete. The new terminal is expected to employ about 30 full-time workers and support about 150 direct and indirect jobs during construction. The terminal will be capable of receiving product by rail, barge, and truck. Two on-site domes will provide storage capacity for up to 90,000 metric tons of wood pellets. (Source: Lesprom, 11/08/19)
