US energy company Phillips 66 is planning to reconfigure its San Francisco refinery to produce renewable fuels, Biofuels Digest reported on 13 August.

Following its revamp, the plant in Rodeo, California, would make fuels from used cooking oil, fats, greases and soyabean oils rather than from crude oil.

The Phillips 66 Rodeo Renewed project would produce 680M gallons/year (3bn litres) of renewable diesel, renewable gasoline, and sustainable jet fuel. Combined with the production of renewable fuels from another project in development, the plant would produce a total of more than 800M gallons/year (3.6bn litres) of renewable fuels, Biofuels Digest said.
