Renewable diesel fuel is gaining ground across the U.S. CVR Energy Inc. is increasing production at its Wynnewood refinery in Southern Oklahoma where production started in October 2022.
Marathon Petroleum has similar production at a plant in Dickinson, North Dakota where the company describes the fuel as a major turning point in the world of fuel production.
The Dickinson Press reported the plant produces 184 million gallons of renewable diesel a year while the CVR Refinery in Wynnewood had third quarter 2022 production of not quite 18 million gallons.
CVR was anticipating turning its renewables business into a separate entity, a move that is expected to be complete in the first half of 2023.
