About the event
Join us on November 16 to learn about NXTClean Fuels Inc. and its subsidiaries – NEXT Renewable Fuels (Port Westward Renewable Diesel & SAF production facility) and Lakeview RNG (Renewable Diesel, RNG & Clean Hydrogen production facility). Chris Efird will provide an overview of NXTClean and insight into the Lakeview operation and their intent with this facility.
NXTClean aims to be a leader in producing renewable transportation fuels by converting recycled organic materials, such as used cooking oil, into an advanced biofuel that emits up to 85% less greenhouse gas. Their development and technology partners will provide the renewable transportation fuels that the future demands here in Oregon.
NXTClean is a next-generation fuels company dedicated to producing clean, low-carbon fuels sustainably. The company is permitting and developing a 50,000 barrel-per-day / 750 million gallon-per-year Renewable Diesel (“RD”) / Sustainable Aviation Fuel (“SAF”) refinery in Oregon with easy multi-modal access to the West Coast demand markets. The project is advancing through permitting and expects to begin construction upon completing an Environmental Impact Statement with the US Army Corp of Engineers. RD and SAF are high-margin liquid transportation fuels worldwide, and there is an urgent global demand for increased supply. To learn more about NEXT, please visit www.nextrenewables.com.
