Ireland refinery producing renewable diesel

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Dec. 20 -- ConocoPhillips has begun commercial production of renewable diesel from soybean oil and other vegetable oils at its 71,000-b/d Whitegate refinery in Cork, Ireland.

Whitegate is producing 1,000 b/d of renewable diesel using its existing equipment. Unlike biodiesel, the renewable diesel is blended and transported with petroleum-based diesel.

Use of the renewable diesel will help reduce carbon emissions, ConocoPhillips said.
