ADI was incorporated in mid 1992 and started blending and marketing
industrial grade ethyl alcohol in September of the same year. Tolling
arrangements were utilized until the ADI production facility was started up
in December 1994. The plant is located on the Cape Fear River in Leland, N.C.
The original business objective was, and still is, to process and manufacture low
molecular weight and relatively benign organic liquids. This has now been
extended to include various blending operations.
The basic services available are distillation, dehydration, reaction, carbon treating
and blending. The operation is supported by the following:
||Tank farm consisting of more than seventy tanks ranging from 3,000 to 250,000 gallon capacity
||Truck accommodations only at present time. Rail and barge access can be arranged nearby. A truck scale exists on the premises.
||Non-hazardous water treating plant adjacent to the ADI facility
The company maintains all required EPA permits and is fully permitted by the Alcohol and Tobacco
Tax and Trade Bureau (formerly the BATF). The OSHA required Process Safety
Management program (PSM) is fully implemented and current; all OSHA training
programs including "Hazwhopper" and TSCA are current. Yearly audits by major
tolling customers help keep ADI current on new regulations.
The key service that differentiates ADI from most other chemical processing and
tolling companies is the ability to develop solutions to problems that clients bring
and to design, fabricate and install the equipment necessary to implement the
solution; this has generated the bulk of ADI's tolling business.
