NEXT Renewable Fuels, Inc. is leading the way in turning recycled organic materials into renewable transportation fuels. Right here in Oregon.

NEXT Renewable Fuels turns recycled organic materials, such as used cooking oil, into an advanced biofuel that works just like petroleum-based diesel, but with as much as 85 percent less greenhouse gas emissions. With our development and technology partners, NEXT Renewable Fuels provides the renewable transportation fuels the future demands.

NEXT for Oregon

The project is an investment in Oregon – and the future.

ABOUT THE PROJECT

NEXT for Oregon

Representing an investment at Port Westward of more than $1.5 billion, NEXT Renewable Fuels Oregon will be capable of producing more than 37,500 barrels a day of advanced biofuels at initial start-up, growing to more than 50,000 barrels a day at full capacity. Both the recycled materials and the finished product will move in and out of the port by ship, meaning little additional rail traffic. More than 240 skilled local workers will be employed on-site, ensuring safe and reliable operation.

The fuels produced in Oregon will be shipped up and down the west coast and create an emissions savings equivalent to removing more than 1 million automobiles from the road.

Currently in the permitting phase, the facility is scheduled to open in 2024. When the facility is complete, NEXT Renewable Fuels will position Oregon as a leader in advanced biofuels production.

ABOUT BIOFUELS

NEXT Advanced Biofuels

A true drop-in replacement fuel, NEXT Renewable Fuels are chemically identical to the petroleum-based fuels they replace. There is no need to blend them with traditional fuels, and they’re produced from recycled organic materials like cooking oil.

Approximately 430 million barrels of biofuels are currently produced each year in the United States. Worldwide demand is projected to reach 600 million barrels per year within the next 15 years.

Community Impact

NEXT Renewable Fuels predicts significant positive community impacts resulting from the development of its Advanced Green Diesel refinery at Port Westward, OR. These impacts include direct, indirect, and induced impacts resulting from the construction and operation of the facility and are divided between those occurring during the two-year construction period and those occurring during the long-term operation of the facility.

Construction period impacts are estimated to include the introduction of an additional $ 1.6 billion in overall economic activity. This includes the impact of over 5,000 jobs that will be added during this period, annual labor income of $ 364 MM, and an increase in approximately $ 33 MM in annual tax receipts.

Once the facility begins operations, employment gains are estimated to total over 830 jobs, including over 200 at the refinery itself. This represents total labor income of almost $ 40 MM with total annual economic impact for the region resulting from the facility approaching $ 1.7 billion, or a 12 percent increase in output for the region over 2019 numbers. Annual state and local taxes are estimated to exceed $ 45 MM per year.
