15.02.16. Flint Hills Resources (FHR) is moving forward with a project to build its first ethanol terminal in Texas, at Buda. The terminal is expected to be operational by December this year.
The new facility will include a rail spur, two storage tanks, a truck-loading rack, water storage and an operations building. Over 100 contractors will be employed for the construction.
“Buda is an efficient distribution hub to our existing Texas fuel terminals and this centralised location will enable us to meet the ethanol demands of our customers throughout Central and South Texas,” said Nathan Brubaker, Texas marketing general manager for Flint Hills Resources.
FHR owns and operates refined products terminals in San Antonio, Bastrop, Austin, Mustang Ridge, Waco, Corpus Christi and Euless, Texas. It also has refined products terminals in Iowa, Wisconsin, Alaska, and Minnesota. FHR has been blending ethanol since the 1990s and entered ethanol production in 2010 with the purchase of two plants in Iowa. Today, the company has seven ethanol plants located in Iowa, Nebraska and Georgia.
