A general view of the Phillips 66 refinery, as seen from Rodeo, CA


Phillips 66, the company that got its start in Bartlesville, Oklahoma and is now headquartered in Houston, is putting a lot of money on the line in revamping a California refinery and making it a massive renewable diesel plant.

The project involves its 127-year old complex in Rodeo, California and while Phillips 66 proclaims it as a greener future, it has its detractors who question the company’s motives and claims reported Reuters.

The project could also mean more train traffic, thus resulting in increased emissions and the risk of spills.
