Darling Ingredients will build a second renewable diesel plant with a capacity of 400 million gallons per year (MGY) adjacent to its existing 275 MGY plant, essentially establishing Diamond Green Diesel as the world's largest renewable diesel complex. There remains little doubt about the commercial viability of renewable diesel; in fact, the sizable expansion indicates that demand for renewable diesel in the U.S. is far outpacing supply. The largest barrier to renewable diesel expansion is feedstock supply. Diamond Green Diesel obtains its waste fat, oil, and grease (FOG) feedstock directly from Darling Ingredients and thus overcomes a significant hurdle by avoiding the need to procure feedstock from distributed sources.
