New Mexico is set for biodiesel with the soon to open B100 biodiesel terminal in July. Once online, this will be the state’s largest biodiesel terminal, which is owned and operated by the Renewable Energy Group (REG), the country’s largest biodiesel producer. Product will be available from the Clovis, New Mexico facility in July.

“Renewable Energy Group believes this new terminal infrastructure demonstrates our commitment to offering our customers better access to biodiesel blending locations throughout the Southwest and West,” said REG President and CEO, Daniel J. Oh. “We intend to complete construction of REG Clovis as a biodiesel production site, the timing of which depends on a variety of factors. Using the location as a terminal is an important initial step in the process to meet local market demand.”

REG Clovis is set to produce 15 million gallons per year and is nearly 40 percent complete. The company is converting the site’s liquid storage and truck load-out into a wholesale terminal for REG-9000® branded biodiesel sales via truck and rail.
