Greenleaf Biofuels plans biodiesel facility at New Haven Terminal

February 7, 2011 |

In Connecticut, Greenleaf Biofuels is planning on operating a biodiesel facility at the New Haven Terminal Property.  According to Greenleaf’s website, the “…plant will be sited within the fuel tank storage farm area of New Haven harbor – the largest such fuel storage farm between New York and Boston.   This area is also a key distribution hub for home heating oil in the state, where each year approximately 400 million gallons of heating oil are sent inland via pipeline or truck.

New Haven is also home to 750,000 barrels (nearly half) of the Northeast Heating Oil Strategic Reserve.”  The website further states that the “…initial project is a 10 million gallon per year (mgy) biodiesel plant located in New Haven, Connecticut.  The plant will initially utilize waste vegetable oil (WVO) for its feedstock and eventually expand production to 20+ mgy. ”  Phase 1 will consist of demolition of existing buildings to accommodate an approximately 8,500 sq. ft. facility and approximately 3,600 sq. ft. tank farm with eight tanks.  Greenleaf will possibly add more production space and fuel tanks if demand warrants it.  Greenleaf will not do the blending, but rather sell the biodiesel to others for blending.
