“Montana Renewables started initial renewable fuels production in late 2022 and successfully commissioned its renewable hydrogen plant in March,” he said.
“It’s a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team to see our renewable hydrogen plant de-risked, demonstrating our unique ability to reduce the carbon intensity of our products at increased rates,” Borgmann added.
Calumet Specialty Products Partners manufacturers, formulates and markets a diversified slate of specialty branded products to customers in various consumer-facing and industrial markets.

Montana Renewables is permitted for 15,000 barrels per stream day of renewable feedstocks, which are converted into low-emission sustainable alternatives that directly replace fossil-fuel products.
The renewable manufacturing plant began operations in late 2022.
“As the world recognizes a sustainability responsibility, Montana Renewables is poised to make immediate carbon reductions and stands ready to grow and innovate further,” Calumet stated.
“This business is a leader in North America’s energy transition,” the company added.
