‘No significant visible damage’ to REG renewable diesel plant from Hurricane Ida


One day after Hurricane Ida made landfall in Louisiana Aug. 29, Biobased Diesel Daily published an article about how the state’s two renewable diesel refineries in Norco (Diamond Green Diesel) and Geismar (Renewable Energy Group) had shut down in preparation for the storm. At the time, neither company had updates beyond their previous statements on whether damage was sustained or when they would start back up.


CJ Warner, REG president and CEO, issued the following update Sept. 2.


“We are grateful that all team members are safe and accounted for following Hurricane Ida. In advance of the hurricane’s landfall, our local team brought down the plant in a safe and secure manner. Although the storm caused major power outages in Ascension Parish, power has now been restored and the REG plant shows no significant visible damage. The team are recommissioning the plant today and will be initiating and ramping up production as full utilities become available.”
