November 3, 2020 |

In Ohio, Marathon Petroleum says the Dickinson, North Dakota renewable fuels facility is starting up. At full capacity, the facility is expected to produce 12,000 barrels per day of renewable diesel from corn and soybean oil. MPC intends to sell the renewable diesel into the California market to comply with the California Low Carbon Fuel Standard.

The company also progressed activities associated with the conversion of the Martinez refinery to a renewable diesel facility, including applying for permits, advancing discussions with feedstock suppliers, and beginning detailed engineering activities. As envisioned, the Martinez facility would be expected to start producing renewable diesel in 2022, with a potential to build to full capacity of 48,000 barrels per day in 2023.
