Imperium Renewables will officially open its Grays Harbor biodiesel facility in Grays Harbor, Wash., today with a grand opening ceremony at the facility. With 100 MMgy of production capacity, Imperium Renewables Grays Harbor will be the largest biodiesel production facility in the U.S.

"The launch of Grays Harbor represents a coming of age for the biodiesel industry," said John Plaza, founder and president of Imperium Renewables. "This facility has the scale and the systems to produce fuel comparable to petroleum diesel that meets or exceeds ASTM standards. The difference is that our fuel has far less impact on our environment than fossil fuels and is made from renewable resources."

The facility lies at the Port of Grays Harbor, Wash., and is capable of storing up to 17 million gallons of biodiesel and feedstocks at any one time.
