US Development Group to build ethanol distribution hub in Southern California

Ethanol handling firm US Development Group (USDG) announced that it will be starting construction on its new ethanol distribution hub located in the Inland Empire area of southern California.

Construction on the West Colton Rail Terminal will occur in two phases. Phase one will be located in Rialto and will consist of a manifold transfer system to receive and offload ethanol railcars in the fall of 2009. Phase one will have the capacity to handle the current demand for ethanol in Colton and to meet the required increase of a 10% ethanol blend in gasoline in 2010.

Phase two of the facility will be located on an adjacent site in Colton and will include full unit train capability and ethanol storage.

According to Larry Padfield, vice president of USDG, the new facility will help answer the growing demand for ethanol by enhancing the distribution capability of the renewable fuel throughout the region. Increased demand for ethanol has led to an increase in railcar shipments from Midwest ethanol production plants in 2f008.

The West Colton Rail Terminal will be served by the Union Pacific Railroad and will be located near gasoline blending terminals that serve the greater San Bernardino and Riverside County-Inland Empire region.

US Development Group is a leader in ethanol handling and distribution terminals. With headquarters in Pasadena, Texas, the company has major ethanol hub facilities in Linden, New Jersey, Baltimore, Dallas and Houston.
