East Coast Ethanol to build 4 ethanol plants in Southeast region
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- East Coast Ethanol LLC said Monday it will build four corn-based ethanol plants in the Southeast to supply the region with the alternative fuel.
The South Carolina-based company said the 110-million-gallon-per-year plants will be built in Jesup, Ga., Campbellton, Fla., Chester, S.C. and Jackson, N.C.
The plants are part of an $871 million investment by East Coast Ethanol, which was formed in September 2007 when Atlantic Ethanol LLC, Mid-Atlantic Ethanol LLC, Florida Ethanol LLC and Palmetto Agri-Fuels LLC consolidated into a single company.
