- Shell Carson Facility Ethanol (E10) Project
- Shell Oil Products US is proposing a project at its Carson Distribution Facility (Carson Facility) to increase the Carson Facility's capacity to store on-site either 100 percent pure (neat) or denatured ethanol (a blend of ethanol and approximately two to five percent gasoline) and load ethanol into tanker trucks that deliver the ethanol to gasoline blending and distribution terminals for the southern CA market. The increase in ethanol storage and loading capacity is in response to requests by Shell's existing clients for a more efficient, consolidated facility that will allow those customers to better meet an increase in the amount of ethanol required to be blended into gasoline to comply with the 2007 amendments to the CA Air Resources Board (CARB) Phase 3 Reformulated Gasoline (RFG) requirements.
