World Energy has announced a US$350 million investment over the next two years to complete the conversion of its Paramount, California, US facility into one of the cleanest fuel refineries in the world.
The project will enable World Energy Paramount to process 306 million gal./yr. The conversion to renewable jet, diesel, gasoline and propane will reduce both refinery and fuel emissions while supporting more than 100 advanced, green economy jobs.
Congresswoman Lucille Roybal-Allard, State Senator Henry Stern, California Air Resources Board Chairwoman Mary Nichols, former State Senator Fran Pavley, the South Coast Air Quality Management District, Paramount's Mayor, and City Council members, and the Paramount Chamber of Commerce were among the elected officials, policymakers, climate and community leaders in attendance for the announcement.
