HOUSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Philips 66 (NYSE:PSX) made a final investment decision on Wednesday to move forward with Rodeo Renewed, the proposed conversion of its San Francisco refinery in Rodeo, Calif. , into one of the world’s largest renewable fuels facilities. The project, which recently received approval from Contra Costa County, is expected to cost approximately $850 million and begin commercial operations in the first quarter of 2024.

Upon completion of Rodeo Renewed, the converted facility will no longer process crude oil and will instead use oils, greases, greases and waste vegetable oils to produce 800 million gallons per year (more than 50,000 barrels per day) of renewable transportation fuels, including renewable fuels. diesel, renewable gasoline and sustainable aviation fuel. Producing these fuels is expected to reduce lifecycle carbon emissions by approximately 65%, the equivalent of taking 1.4 million cars off California’s roads each year. Rodeo Renewed is also expected to reduce on-site criteria pollutant emissions by 55% and water consumption by 160 million gallons per year.
The scope of the project includes the construction of pre-treatment units and the repurposing of existing hydrocracking units to enable the production of renewable fuels. The converted facility will leverage its flexible logistics infrastructure to secure renewable raw materials from local, national and international sources and supply renewable fuels to California and other markets.
The facility conversion will create 500 construction jobs and maintain over 650 jobs, including full-time employees and contractors. It’s poised to help California meet the demand for transportation fuels while helping the state meet its environmental goals.
