Community Fuels will expand its production capabilities to sell and distribute up to 73 million gallons of advanced biodiesel per year.

The California Energy Commission awarded two grants to Community Fuels to expand its biodiesel production capacity and construct an advanced biofuel terminal adjacent to its existing 10-million-gallon-per-year biorefinery at the Port of Stockton, CA.

The site is strategically located next to fuel distribution facilities, major trucking corridors, rail lines, and a marine shipping channel. Particular emphasis is placed on ensuring the highest degree of product quality, and terminal operations leverage the existing on-site fuel quality control laboratory.

The fuel terminal is designed to sell and distribute up to 73 million gallons of advanced biodiesel per year. The biodiesel meets conventional diesel quality standards and depending upon actual volume and the carbon intensity of the fuel mix, could help reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 720,000 metric tons per year.
