Safe Handling Inc. announces the opening of a new biofuels terminal, which includes the first ethanol transloading facility in the state. With direct rail access to the Midwest farm belt, this terminal gives Maine’s fuel wholesalers rapid and economic access to domestically grown biofuels.
Maine’s primary importer of biodiesel, Safe Handling, has now opened the state’s first ethanol terminal. This rail-to-truck transloading terminal is the first step towards making ethanol-blended gasoline available at retail stations.
The new facility was constructed in response to strong interest from biofuel producers, marketers and wholesalers who needed a cost-effective way of importing product into the state. The terminal is located in Auburn, Maine and offers uniquely efficient and direct rail service from biofuel producers located in the Midwest and Canada. The terminal has been equipped with state-of-the-art transloading equipment, spill containment, and fire suppression systems.
