Blendstar breaks ground
for new biofuel terminal
Dec 1, 2009 8:56 AM
Blendstar LLC announced the groundbreaking for a biofuel transload terminal to distribute ethanol and biodiesel along the Gulf Coast. The terminal, to be located in Collins MS about seven miles north of local fuel terminals and the breakout tank farm for the Colonial and Plantation Pipelines, will be the first full-scale commercial facility in Mississippi dedicated to biofuel distribution.
The facility will have enough capacity to serve the local market as well as any growth from higher blending ratios or increased biofuel injections into the product pipeline system. The terminal will facilitate rail access on the Canadian National Railroad to rapidly deliver biodiesel and ethanol. The company will provide full-load delivery and splash blending of both ethanol and biodiesel and will customize service for customer needs.
With the addition of the Collins terminal, Blendstar will have an annual throughput capacity of more than 350 million gallons. Visit www.blendstarllc.com for more details.
