A $190 million expansion of the Diamond Green Diesel production facility in Norco is on track for a second-quarter 2018 startup.
The project will expand the facility’s annual capacity from 160 million gallons to 275 million gallons of renewable diesel fuel made from recycled animal fat, used cooking oil and other feedstocks.
Diamond Green is a joint venture of Darling Ingredients Inc. and Valero Energy Corp., which has a nearby refinery in St. Charles Parish.
In its latest earnings report, Darling said engineering and construction planning is progressing on the Norco project and that equipment has been ordered that requires a long lead time for manufacturing.
