Enviva Pellet Plant Receives Thumbs Up
Enviva, the world’s largest producer of wood pellets, reports that the Alabama Dept. of Environmental Management (ADEM) approved a permit allowing Enviva to construct a wood pellet facility in Sumter County. This permit paves the way for 85 full-time jobs and an estimated 180 additional jobs in logging, transportation and local services, as well as the creation of 300-400 jobs during construction of the plant. The facility will be located at the Port of Epes Industrial Park and represents an initial investment of $175 million and an expected annual economic impact in the region of approximately $180 million.
Enviva Chairman & CEO John Keppler comments, “The decision by the Alabama Department of Environmental Management is not just about a new wood pellet plant in Sumter County, because Enviva is more than that. More than a wood pellet plant, we will be a good neighbor and community partner you can count on for a long time to come.”
