REG finishes Minnesota biodiesel refinery upgrade

07.10.2013  | 

Renewable Energy Group Inc. recently completed $21 MM in technology upgrades at its biodiesel refinery in southern Minnesota.


Renewable Energy Group Inc. (REGI) recently completed $21 million (MM) in technology upgrades at its 30 MM-gallon biodiesel refinery in southern Minnesota.

The on-time, on-budget upgrades allow the facility to run a wide variety of locally-sourced agricultural byproducts such as animal fats, used cooking oils, inedible corn oils and yellow grease as well as vegetable oils.

Within days of startup, all biodiesel produced met the company’s REG-9000 quality specifications, which exceed the industry’s ASTM B100 standard.

The multiple-feedstock product has been available since June 19, 2013 and enhances biodiesel product availability options as Minnesota prepares to increase its diesel blending requirement from 5% biodiesel to 10% biodiesel.

REGI will celebrate the project with an official ribbon cutting ceremony later this summer.
