Ethanol Terminal Opens in Shreveport

Cindy Zimmerman

A terminal to provide the ethanol needs of northwest Louisiana and the surrounding area has opened in Shreveport.

Eco-Energy, Inc. of Franklin, Tennessee recently started operations at the ethanol distribution terminal, which is a joint project with Red River Terminals and is expected to serve the bulk ethanol needs of the Shreveport area as ethanol blending increases over the next several months. The facility is located close to the area’s gasoline terminals to provide customers with a logistically advantaged outlet to receive ethanol via rail into the metropolitan area. The terminal is equipped with a railcar manifold system and dual truck loading rack that will allow for the simultaneous offloading of up to 10 rail cars per day. Eco-Energy will be responsible for the day-to-day logistics, throughput, and accounting activities for this terminal.

Eco-Energy is an alternative energy company focused on the marketing, trading, transportation, and distribution of biofuels. The Distribution Services division of Eco-Energy locates, develops and manages sites for transloading and distribution in strategic locations where it is difficult to bring biofuels to market.
