Arbor Renewable Gas, LLC (Arbor Gas) has selected a 53 acre site in Beaumont, Texas, US, as the home of its first renewable gasoline plant. The ‘Spindletop Plant’ is located on the Beaumont, Nederland border. The site was selected for its access to critical infrastructure and feedstock as well as talented and experienced workforce, along with longstanding community support for modern fuel plants.
The plant will produce approximately 1000 bpd of high quality, environmentally responsible ‘drop-in’ renewable gasoline for sale into the renewable fuels marketplace. The gasoline will be produced from woody biomass generated from the East Texas woodshed, in compliance with the EPA rules under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS). Once produced, the gasoline will be shipped to consumers that require the fuel under the Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS).
Construction of the Spindletop Plant will commence in 1Q2022, with an expected completion date in late 2023. Commercial production from the facility is expected to begin in early 2024.
Additionally, Arbor Gas has tentatively selected a site in Pasadena, Texas, for continued later expansion. The ‘Red Bluff Road’ site is ideally located in the Bayport industrial district near large consumers of hydrogen. This site offers a unique location to produce renewable hydrogen on an industrial-scale with the ability to efficiently transport the product via pipeline directly to end users.
