Phillips 66 and Renewable Energy Group Inc. (REG) have announced that planning is underway for the construction of a large-scale renewable diesel plant on the US West Coast.
The plant would utilise REG’s proprietary BioSynfining® technology for the production of renewable diesel fuel. Planned feedstocks include a mix of waste fats, oils and greases, including regionally-sourced vegetable oils, animal fats and used cooking oil.
The new facility would be constructed adjacent to the Phillips 66 Ferndale Refinery in Washington state. The Ferndale Refinery offers existing infrastructure, including tank storage, a dock, and rail and truck rack access.
REG owns and operates 13 biomass-based diesel refineries, with a combined effective production capacity of 565 million gal./yr. This includes REG Geismar, a 75 million gal. nameplate capacity plant located in Louisiana, US, that was the first renewable diesel plant built in North America. REG’s 100 million gal./yr REG Grays Harbor biodiesel plant, the largest biorefinery in the REG fleet, is also located in Washington state.
