“Ralston is where it all began for REG and the experience and lessons we have learned, and are still learning, have helped our company grow into what it is today,” said Daniel J. Oh, president and CEO.
REG stated that the announcement to expand Ralston comes on the heels of Landus Cooperative expanding its adjacent soy crush operation.
“On behalf of our farmer-owners, we look forward to finalizing plans with REG for their expansion as another way to add value to our soybeans via oil utilization at the Ralston biorefinery,” said John Scott, an Odebolt, Iowa, farmer and president of the Landus Cooperative board of directors.
“With a greater, adjacent feedstock supply and continuous improvements at REG Ralston, this capacity expansion is a logical investment,” said Brad Albin, REG vice president of manufacturing. “We look forward to more good things from this outstanding biorefinery and our continued relationship with Landus Cooperative.”
When complete, the Ralston expansion would increase REG’s cumulative nameplate capacity to 470 MMgy from its 11 active U.S. biodiesel and renewable diesel plants.
