Wood says it is advancing a project for Renewable Energy Group (REG) that will expand REG’s renewable diesel fuel offering to help meet the world’s growing demand for lower-carbon, sustainable fuels. The engineering, procurement and construction management services contract will support REG’s improvement and expansion project at its renewable diesel biorefinery in Geismar, Louisiana. The project reportedly will take total site production capacity from 90 million to 340 million gallons, enhance existing operations and improve operational reliability and logistics.
“We’re seeing increased focus by companies using a multitude of renewable feedstocks that can deliver low-carbon fuels to customers and this is clearly at the heart of REG’s strategy,” says Steve Conway, senior vice president, Americas at Wood.
In addition to the Geismar renewable diesel plant, REG operates biodiesel plants in the U.S. and in Germany.
“We are committed to helping lead the transition to cleaner, greener energy. This project is an exceptional example of that, and will enable us to deliver more sustainable fuels that our forward-looking customers are demanding,” says REG President and CEO Cynthia (CJ) Warner.
