BP has completed the expansion of its renewable diesel coprocessing capacity at the company’s Cherry Point refinery in Washington state.

The refinery has doubled its renewable diesel capacity and is now able to coprocess nearly 110 million gallons of renewable diesel per year from feedstocks such as waste vegetable oil and animal fats.

This upgrade is expected to reduce the CO2 emissions resulting from the diesel produced at BP’s Cherry Point refinery by up to 600,000 tons per year—the equivalent of taking around 130,000 cars off the road.

“We’re excited that Cherry Point continues taking steps towards a lower-carbon future,” said Amber Russell, BP’s senior vice president of refining, terminals and pipelines. “This work shows the important role refining can play in helping both BP and the world to reach net zero.”

BP first announced the expansion of renewable diesel coprocessing at Cherry Point in the fall of 2021. The endeavor is one of three upgrades to the facility totaling $269 million, including a $169 million hydrocracker improvement project and a $55 million cooling water infrastructure project.

While the renewable diesel coprocessing project is now complete, the other two are expected to be finished next year.
