The Enviva plant is expected to have the capacity to produce 700,000 metric tons of pellets on an annual basis, but in time that figure could grow to more than one million metric tons. The project consists of a capital investment of $175 million and 85 full-time jobs, and it is expected to create 180 additional regional jobs in logging, transportation, and services. Enviva’s chief executive officer and chairman, John Keppler, added “with its thriving forest resources, great local workforce, and favorable transportation logistics, we look forward to the opportunity to grow sustainably in west Alabama for decades to come.”
