Wood Pellet Industry Gets Positive Feedback at DHEC Public Hearing

web posted April 16, 2014

EDGEFIELD The Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) held a public hearing for a proposed wood pellet plant that could locate on over 100 acres along Highway 121 just outside of Trenton. The industry, Piedmont Wood Pellet Johnston LLC, a division of Enova Energy Group out of Atlanta Ga., gave a short presentation at the beginning of the hearing.

Some of the detractors during county council meetings during the rezoning of the property spoke in favor of the project after visiting the companies other locations in Georgia. Those visits settled their concerns.

DHEC was holding the public hearing mainly on air quality standards on the proposed plant.

The planned industry would be the largest single initial investment by an industry in Edgefield County history, estimated to be between $120 and $150 million. The new plant would provide between 60 and 70 above average paying jobs when operational.

Edgefield County Administrator Lynn Strom said Tuesday that the company has not made an official commitment to the county at this time.

DHEC will leave the comment period open until May 1 at 5 pm.
