The Georgia Project is a 20 million gallon/year biocrude production facility being developed by Ensyn Development Partners (EDP), a 50/50 joint venture between Ensyn and Renova Capital Partners. The project is located at a mothballed particle board mill in Dooley County, Georgia owned by Roseburg Forest Products.
Roseburg is a closely-held wood products manufacturer and timberland owner with operations throughout the United States. Roseburg has over 3,000 employees and over 80 years of operations. Roseburg is providing the site and is sourcing the feedstock.
Feedstock for the project is expected to consist of mill residues or forest residues and thinnings from local sources.
Biocrude offtake will be directed to refineries for co-processing and/or heating & cooling clients in the region.
The RTP biomass conversion unit will be engineered and supplied by Honeywell UOP through Envergent Technologies.
The Vienna Project has received a conditional commitment from the U.S. Department of Agriculture for a US$70 million loan guarantee under the 9003 Biorefinery Assistance Program. Citi is the project’s Lender of Record under this loan guarantee program.
