The project modifications will include a new Pretreat Unit, modifications to the existing Renewables Fuels Units, a new Renewable Fuels Unit, a new Hydrogen Generation Unit, a new Hydrogen Recovery Unit, a new Propane Recovery Unit, upgrades to the existing wastewater treatment system, a new Hydrogen Sulfide Recovery Unit, a second Sour Water Stripper, a new flare, modifications to the truck and rail loading/unloading racks, and new pipelines within the facility. In addition, some existing tanks will be upgraded/repaired and be permitted to handle different products (e.g., non-edible vegetable oils and beef tallow). The Project also includes utilizing two existing 55.000-barrel storage tanks at the Lakewood Tank Farm.
