In Oregon, NEXT Renewable Fuels agreed to purchase a 25-acre parcel at the Port of Columbia County’s Port Westward Industrial Park in order to start building their renewable diesel project. NEXT will supply the West Coast with its Advanced Green Diesel, creating emissions savings equal to removing 1 million vehicles from the road. Scheduled to open in 2021, this state‐of‐the‐art facility will eventually employ more than 200 skilled workers on site and will position Oregon as a leader in advanced biofuels production.
“We are extremely pleased to be working with the Teevin team on our renewable diesel project and happy to have secured the land that will allow us to start filing permits,” said Lou Soumas, president of NEXT Renewable Fuels.
The land is zoned industrial and was purchased from Teevin Bros, a local material handling and timber company.
NEXT is focused on the development and production of second‐generation advanced biofuels, including renewable green diesel, renewable propane and renewable naphtha to supply contracted off‐take agreements for customers in the western United States and Canada. Advanced Green Diesel is a second-generation biofuel, meaning it is a drop-in replacement for fossil fuel-based diesel.
