Delta-Energy Group Invests $45 Million To Establish Operations Plant In Natchez, Mississippi

02/11/2015
Resource recovery company Delta-Energy Group, LLC will locate its operations center at the former International Paper facility in Natchez, Mississippi. The project represents a corporate investment of $45 million and will create 91 new jobs.

From its Natchez location, wholly owned subsidiary Delta-Energy Natchez, LLC will use its proprietary process to reclaim purchased feedstock from products derived from scrap tires, such as carbon solids and hydrocarbon liquids, with no waste. The company will then sell the carbon product for use in rubber compounds, and the liquids will be sold within the chemical industry.

“We are pleased to bring to commercial scale our technology development efforts of more than 10 years in a community and state, which demonstrates support for business innovation and real leadership in providing training skills development for its citizens,” said Delta-Energy CEO Paul Lee. “We are proud to call Natchez home and expect to accomplish great things together.”

As an incentive, Mississippi Development Authority provided assistance in support of the project to rebuild a rail spur serving the site. “MDA is glad to have the resources in place to assist companies as they expand or locate in the state, and we are proud to welcome our newest business partner – Delta-Energy Group – to Southwest Mississippi,” said MDA Executive Director Brent Christensen. “We thank our partners at Natchez, Inc. and Adams County for their efforts in bringing Delta-Energy to our state.”

“I appreciate the team at Delta-Energy for choosing to locate these operations in Natchez and for creating so many new jobs for the area’s residents,” Governor Phil Bryant said. “Companies locate and expand in Mississippi because we strive to provide a supportive business climate. I look forward to watching Delta-Energy thrive in Adams County.”
