Phillips 66 to Reconfigure California Refinery for Production of Renewable DieselThursday, September 24, 2020
US energy company Phillips 66 is planning to revamp its San Francisco refinery to produce renewable fuels, Biofuels Digest reported on 13 August. Following its revamp, the plant in Rodeo, California, would make fuels from used cooking oil, fats, greases, and soybean oils rather than from crude oil.
The Phillips 66 Rodeo Renewed project would produce 680M gallons/year (3bn liters) of renewable diesel, renewable gasoline, and sustainable jet fuel. Combined with the production of renewable fuels from another project in development, the plant would produce a total of more than 800 million gallons/year (3.6bn liters) of renewable fuels, making it the world’s largest facility of its kind.
