Houston Business Journal. Dresser-Rand Group Inc. will supply rotating equipment for the first full-scale production of renewable diesel fuel in the US. The Houston-based oil and gas equipment maker received the order from Diamond Green Diesel LLC. (Earlier post.)
In January, the US Department of Energy offered Diamond Green Diesel, a joint venture between Valero Energy Corporation and Darling International Inc., a $241-million loan guarantee to support the construction of the 137-million gallon per year renewable diesel facility in Norco, Louisiana, about 20 miles west of New Orleans.
The project will use the UOP/Eni Ecofining process to convert recycled animal fats, recycled cooking oils and other feedstocks into renewable diesel fuel. UOP is a Honeywell company.
