Diamond Green Diesel receives air permits for proposed third expansion project

October 27, 2020 |

In Texas, Darling Ingredients’ Diamond Green Diesel (DGD) joint venture has received the necessary air permit from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ), making construction one step closer on the proposed renewable diesel plant known as DGD III in Port Arthur, Texas. DGD continues to work through its gated project development process and a final investment decision is expected to be reached in early 2021.

The current DGD II 400 million gallon plant expansion is still expected to be completed in 2021, bringing the total capacity of DGD to 675 million gallons of renewable diesel production, while also adding 60 million gallons of renewable naphtha production to the platform. With the potential approval of DGD III, Darling’s joint venture will have renewable diesel production capacity of 1.1 billion gallons and 100 million gallons of renewable naphtha production capacity annually. Darling continues to lead the world in decarbonization with our stated goals of reducing energy and water consumption over the coming years and the significant reduction in carbon emissions in transport fuels from the usage of renewable diesel produced by DGD across North America and the World.
