Enviva owns and operates the deep-water marine terminal in the Bayou Casotte Harbor in Jackson County, MS in partnership with Jackson County Port Authority. Since 2019, the Port Authority and Enviva have invested over $90 million to build the terminal at the Port of Pascagoula which can receive product by rail, barge, and truck as well as support Panamax-sized vessels. The facility includes two wood pellet storage domes with a total storage capacity of 90,000 metric tons. Enviva plans to export wood pellets, sustainably sourced from local, well-managed working forests, from the now fully operational Port of Pascagoula terminal to power and utility customers across Asia, Europe, and the Caribbean – with a majority of the terminal’s future shipments slated for Japan.
“The future has never looked brighter for green jobs, green investment, and the global need to implement true climate change solutions into international economies and supply chains,” said Thomas Meth, President and Chief Executive Officer of Enviva. “Supplying the global demand for more renewable, dispatchable, alternative energy sources continues to be made possible by the dedicated men and woman in southern Mississippi that transport Enviva’s product reliably and safely around the world. Now operational, we will be regularly sending off ships filled with our sustainably sourced wood pellets made in Mississippi by Mississippians.”
