Imperium Renewables and Pacific Coast Canola sign contract for biofuel supply

Imperium
HOQUIAM, Wash. –Imperium Renewables, one of the largest biodiesel manufacturers in the United States, has reached an agreement with Pacific Coast Canola (PCC) to purchaseregionally sourcedcanola oil for biodiesel production.
Pacific Coast Canola’s canola crushing plant in Warden, Wash., is the largest in the West. It began commercial operation in August of 2013 and has the capacity to produce at approximately 137,000 metric tons, or 40,000,000 gallons, of oil annually.
“This milestone agreement with PCC will help us fully realize the potential of renewable biofuels in Washington,” said Imperium CEO John Plaza.  “Canola grown by Pacific Northwest farmers will be processed by PCC and that oil will be made into biodiesel by Imperium at our Hoquiam refinery. This advanced biofuel will be shipped to consumers in the region and around the world. We have been pursuing this goal since 2004 and we are very excited to be working with PCC to see this vision through.”
The agreement will provide a reliable and diversified market for a portion of PCC’s production capacity, while supplying regionally sourced canola oil for Imperium. Locally sourced canola oil will help the biofuels company produce fuels that meet low-carbon fuel standards required by law in California and British Columbia, as well as biodiesel market demands in Oregon and Washington and the global marketplace. Low-carbon fuel standards mandate not only that fuel be refined from less carbon heavy materials such as petroleum, but also take into account the carbon emitted during the growth, production, distribution and use of those fuels.
“We are proud to partner with Imperium, one of our local Washington state customers benefitting from our close proximity,” said Matt Upmeyer, Chief Operations Officer of PCC. “The Imperium contract is another big step as we bring our facility to full capacity, which is great news for local canola farmers.”
