Renewable Diesel


Following significant investment at our Cardiff terminal, Valero Energy Ltd will shortly start marketing renewable diesel in the UK.

Our equity renewable diesel is manufactured in the US, through our Diamond Green Diesel partnership with Darling Ingredients Inc. Following the recent removal of import duties, we now intend to sell our renewable diesel made from UK-qualifying wastes.

Our first cargo is expected to reach Cardiff early March 2023, with sales commencing soon after.

Following the opening of our latest facility in Port Arthur Texas, annual production capacity is expected to reach 4.5 billion litres, making us one of the largest producers of renewable diesel in the world and a reliable source of product for our customers.

​Valero Energy Corporation is the world's largest independent refiner and a major producer of low-carbon liquid fuels and has built a portfolio that includes renewable diesel, renewable naphtha and low-carbon ethanol. We also have projects under development to capture and store carbon dioxide and continue to explore opportunities such as sustainable aviation fuel.​
