US energy company Altair Paramount has applied to produce renewable diesel, naphtha and jet fuels from rendered animal fat feedstock at its California facility, Biofuels Digest reported on 3 December.

The company had jointly lodged its fuel pathways application to the California Air Resources Board (CARB) with Brazilian meat processing company JBS.

Altair sourced rendered inedible animal fat from a JBS-owned meat-packing and rendering facility in Hyrum, Utah, Biofuels Digest said. The feedstock would then be processed at Altair’s Paramount facility.

The application had now been posted by CARB for public comments.
