Renewable Energy Group Opens Biomass-Based Diesel Refinery in Washington State

Renewable Energy Group Inc. recently celebrated the opening of a new biomass-based diesel refinery in Aberdeen, Wash.

REG Grays Harbor LLC, formerly Imperium Grays Harbor, is a 100-million-gallon capacity biodiesel production and terminal facility.

REG, a leading North American producer of advanced biofuels and developer of renewable chemicals, boasts 11 active biorefineries across the U.S. and sells biomass-based diesel to distributors so consumers have access to cleaner burning fuels.

Gary Haer, vice president of sales and Marketing, says the Grays Harbor biorefinery will help REG grow biodiesel sales along the west coast.

“We can now serve customers and expand sales of high quality REG 900™ fuel in Washington, Oregon, western Canada as well as increase sales throughout California to meet LCFS demand,” Haer said. “And with the multi-modal capabilities at the terminal and port, we increase our flexibility to fulfill orders via the use of truckload, rail car or Panamax class tanker shipments.”

REG Grays Harbor also has 18 million gallons of on-site storage and a terminal that accommodates feedstock intake and fuel shipments by truck, rail and deep-water vessel.
