Port Neches Biodiesel Production Facility
The Port Neches Facility, the largest biodiesel production facility in the US, consists of two parallel process units for pretreatment and transesterification. The biodiesel production facility became operational in December of 2008 and has produced over 300 million gallons of ASTM D6751 compliant biodiesel. With more than seventeen million gallons of storage capacity, along with a deepwater port (42’ draft), rail access (KCS line) and proximity to several major refineries and terminals, the Port Neches site has unprecedented access to biodiesel feedstock and biodiesel blendstock markets. Integration with Huntsman’s olefins and oxides complex in Port Neches allows Renewable Biofuels to capture the benefits of Huntsman's existing infrastructure.
