REG Geismar fully operational again after Hurricane Ida

On Sept. 13, more than two weeks after Hurricane Ida made landfall in Louisiana as a Category 4 storm, Renewable Energy Group Inc.’s renewable diesel refinery in Geismar, Louisiana, has returned to normal operations, according to company president and CEO CJ Warner.

“We are grateful that our employees, contractors and partners were able to remain safe throughout, and for their dedicated efforts that enabled us to restart the plant in a safe and controlled manner,” she said.

Ida made landfall Aug. 29 in Port Fourchon, Louisiana. The state’s two renewable diesel facilities announced they were shutting down in advance of the storm. On Sept. 2, Warner said no REG team members were injured, no significant damage occurred to the plant, and that the crew was working to recommission the facility.

REG Geismar can produce 90 million gallons a year (mgy) of renewable diesel and is undergoing a major expansion to be capable of manufacturing 340 mgy.
