Gulf Ethanol plans to build a facility for ethanol production and blending near the Port of Houston.
According to the company, the site is being evaluated to accommodate a production facility of 30 million gallons per year of ethanol. Continued engineering studies will be required to determine construction costs and permitting as well as the time line for implementation.
Gulf Ethanol president JT Cloud says location is the company’s primary concern. “This plant is located within a few hundreds yards of the port and has its own rail spur in the backyard in addition to 23 acres available acres for expansion.”
