The Future of Renewable Diesel

Our facilities in Reno and Las Vegas have created over 500 construction jobs and will create more than 140 full time positions once operational and producing over 11,000 barrels of Renewable Diesel per day.

This capacity is only a fraction of what is needed – the demand for Renewable Diesel in California alone is expected to exceed 150,000 barrels per day. We have additional projects under development that will expand our total capacity to meet this demand over the next 10 years.

Reno

Ryze Renewable Diesel production facility in Reno - under construction

The existing processing facility is located on a developed 10-acre parcel complete with all permits, utilities, operation buildings, and tanks setup to process fuel products. The facility is being repurposed with the necessary additional infrastructures and hydro-processing equipment to take advantage of the existing facility to produce 3,500 barrels per day of drop-in Renewable Diesel.

Project Highlights:

  • Key Numbers

    Total project size of $150 million

    Plant capacity: 50 million gallons per year

  • Timeline

    Groundbreaking = 1st Quarter 2018

    Production Date = 2nd Quarter 2019

  • Jobs

    Construction of the plant will create more than 250 construction jobs, and once completed, will add 65 permanent full-time positions in the Reno area.

  • Location

    The Reno site provides the perfect combination of proximity to feedstock, the northern California fuel markets and access to major highway, rail and utilities.

  • Environment

    Saves more than 700 million pounds of CO2 each year - the equivalent of over 80,000 vehicles

Las Vegas

Ryze Renewable Diesel production facility in Las Vegas - under construction

The existing biodiesel processing facility is located on a developed 14-acre parcel complete with all permits, utilities, operation buildings, and tanks setup to process fuel products. Similar to Reno, the facility is being repurposed with the necessary additional infrastructures and hydro-processing equipment to take advantage of the existing facility to produce 7,500 barrels per day of drop-in Renewable Diesel.

Project Highlights:

  • Key Numbers

    Total project size of $280 million

    Plant capacity: 100 million gallons per year

  • Timeline

    Groundbreaking = 2nd Quarter 2018

    Production Date = 1st Quarter 2020

  • Jobs

    Construction of the plant will create more than 250 construction jobs, and once completed, will add 75 permanent full-time positions in the Las Vegas area.

  • Location

    The Las Vegas site provides the perfect combination of proximity to feedstock, the southern California fuel markets and access to major highway, rail and utilities.

  • Environment

    Saves more than 1.5 billion pounds of CO2 each year - the equivalent of 175,000 vehicles
