Canadian renewable fuel and feedstocks supplier Targray has opened two new biodiesel terminals in Oregon state, USA.
The new terminals are located in Portland and Eugene and are strategically positioned to supply wholesale fuel distributors, retailers and refineries in the state, which has a mandatory 5% biodiesel blending requirement in place, according to a Targray statement on 9 March.
“Like the Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) programme in California, the Oregon Clean Fuels Program (CFP) is a law regulated by the state which requires a 10% reduction in transportation fuel carbon intensity over a 10-year period in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation fuels sector below 2015 levels by 2025,” the company added.
Targray sources, transports, stores, trades and supplies bio-based fuels, with a dedicated rail fleet and terminals in California, Oregon, Washington and the Upper Midwest, USA.
It also trades in a range of emissions-related products, as well as sustainable cotton; supplies pulses and grains out of its Dubai trading desk; and supplies solar and photovoltaic materials.
