On November 7, 2019, Enviva executives along with Governor Phil Bryant, other government and local officials, broke ground on Enviva’s new marine wood pellet export terminal in the Port of Pascagoula, Mississippi (photo courtesy Enviva).

In August 2019, Enviva announced that it had exercised an option with the Jackson County Port Authority to lease property in the Bayou Casotte Harbor in the Port of Pascagoula, Mississippi where it planned to build and operate a deep-water marine terminal.

Held November 7, 2019, the groundbreaking ceremony marks the construction start for the terminal which is expected to take around 15 months being built simultaneously with Enviva’s new Lucedale pellet plant in George County, Mississippi.

When completed, the export terminal will be capable of receiving wood pellets by rail, barge, and truck. Two on-site storage domes will provide storage capacity for up to 90 000 tonnes of wood pellets. The pellets produced in Lucedale and by other Enviva plants in its “strategic asset cluster” in the Gulf region will be exported through the Pascagoula Terminal to markets in Asia and Europe.

Today we take a major step in helping to meet the increasing global demand for sustainable biomass fuel and to ensure greater security of supply to our customers, particularly for the rapidly growing demand from our Asian customers. We are thrilled to be partnering with one of the top-ranking ports in the U.S., the Port of Pascagoula, a major commercial engine and key driving force in local, regional, and international economies said Nic Lane, Enviva’s Executive Vice President, Human Capital.
