FRANKLIN, Tenn.- Eco-Energy LLC, a leading biofuel supply chain and energy solutions company, today announced the establishment of Eco-Specialty Alcohols, Eco-Energy’s high-purity alcohol marketing and trading division.

Eco-Specialty Alcohols leverages Eco-Energy’s ethanol marketing relationships to supply high-purity alcohol to customers. High-purity alcohol applications range from beverage and food to personal care products, institutional and home cleaning, consumer products, and chemical intermediates.

"Ethanol is a renewable, earth-friendly alcohol that has a variety of applications, including its use as a high-purity alcohol,” said Brian Simpson, Chief Marketing Officer of Eco-Energy. “The expansion into this sector is a natural move for Eco-Energy given our long-standing relationships with great producers in the United States, as well as our seamless logistics operation. I am confident customers will come to rely on Eco-Specialty Alcohols’ expertise for their high-purity alcohol needs."

Eco-Specialty Alcohols helps producers and buyers navigate the unique and variable ethanol composition requirements throughout the high-purity alcohol marketplace. Eco-Specialty Alcohols distinction comes from Eco-Energy’s biofuel marketing relationships with bulk ethanol producers who have upgraded operations to meet high-purity alcohol demand. Today, Eco-Specialty Alcohols is marketing for two plants: Commonwealth Agri-Energy in Hopkinsville, Kentucky and Western New York Energy in Medina, New York.

Initial product offerings are pure and denatured U.S.-origin grain ethanol in both 190 and 200 proof forms. Eco-Specialty Alcohols will be able to provide exceptional service and value by integrating FCC / USP Excipient grade and high-purity industrial-grade alcohol into the existing Eco-Energy marketing and distribution operations. Logistics options include bulk packaging, tank trucks, rail tank cars, ocean containers, and bulk vessel parcels. The ability to combine this product range with Eco-Energy’s core strengths in domestic and global logistics and market intelligence sets Eco-Specialty Alcohols apart in the high-purity ethanol trade.
