Enviva to develop two pellet plants in US
Biomass provider Enviva plans to build two new facilities in the US.
The plants, which will be located in Richmond and Sampson, North Carolina, will receive an investment of over $214.2 million (€166 million).
Enviva has manufacturing facilities in North Carolina, Mississippi, and Virginia, and so has an annual total production capacity of approximately 1.6 million metric tonnes.
'Governor McCrory's announcement highlights the great opportunity we see to continue to develop significant infrastructure in North Carolina,' says Enviva's spokeswoman Elizabeth Woodworth. 'North Carolina's abundant wood resources, its strong, sustainable forestry practices, and robust labour force make the state a compelling place to invest.'
