06.05.16. US biofuel company Renewable Energy Group now has more than 14 million gallons of tank capacity to store both biodiesel and feedstocks at its Danville, Illinois operation.
REG Danville, LLC recently purchased the tank complex at the adjacent Bunge Milling facility for approximately us$1.5 million. The tanks are being connected to REG Danville’s existing infrastructure and will increase the biorefinery’s storage capacity for feedstock by at least 950,000 gallons and biodiesel by up to 12 million gallons.
In July 2015, REG began a separate $31 million upgrade project at the multi-feedstock 45 million gallon capacity biorefinery that will add other logistics capabilities along with biodiesel distillation. Through this expansion and the purchase of the Bunge tanks, REG Danville has expanded its footprint around the original facility and now sits on nearly 30 acres. The upgrade project is scheduled to be completed later this year.
