Local residents upset by plans to introduce biodiesel storage by United Riverhead Terminal

June 21, 2018 |

In New York state, local residents have come out against a proposal by United Riverhead Terminal to install biodiesel storage tanks that would allow it to blend 5% biodiesel with heating oil as required by state law as of July 1. The facility dates back to the 1950s and is currently zoned residential although it is allowed to continue operations under a special use permit. Back in 2014, the company tried to introduce ethanol storage for blending with gasoline but eventually backed off due to stiff opposition from the community.
