Oleo-X has announced the launch of its renewable diesel and sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) feedstock pretreatment facility.
Located in Pascagoula, Mississippi, Oleo-X's facility has the potential capacity to produce up to 300 million gallons per year of premium feedstock.
The company leverages its advanced pretreatment technology to innovate exceptionally clean, high-quality RD and SAF feedstocks, which enable partners to produce premium renewable fuels.
Oleo-X’s advanced chemistry formulates an unmatched product that can extend RD and SAF unit catalyst lives by years. The purity of the feed reduces the revamp cost of converting existing conventional refining units to process renewable feedstock, while also lowering carbon intensity.
With its new facility now in operation, Oleo-X is carving out a unique position within the fast-developing renewable energy ecosystem. The company’s innovation is substantially widening the pool of renewable energy feedstocks
“At Oleo-X, our vision is to feed the growing demand for sustainable energy, and today’s launch brings us one major step closer to making that vision a reality,” said Oleo-X investor Ivonne Ruggles.
“Our goal is to be a leader in sustainable energy - we are delivering a product so pure that some customers already call it ‘liquid gold.’ Oleo-X is committed to modernizing and optimizing the way low-carbon fuels are manufactured.”
Oleo-X’s work brings a sustainable, clean energy focus to a facility that previously manufactured chemicals for tires, dyes, and building materials.
The company purchased its site, the former home of Chemour’s First Chemical plant, in June 2022.
Over the past 11 months, Oleo-X invested substantially to revamp and expand the facility, transforming it into a state-of-the-art leader in the renewable fuels space.
