HOUSTON, TEXAS, June 16, 2022 – Together, TritenIAG and Heartwell project leadership have created an integrated project management team of subject matter experts. To date, this team has collaborated on developing and planning the project, and TritenIAG has provided value engineering, process design, and air permitting support. TritenIAG will continue to provide project leadership services for the remainder of the project, including engineering and construction management, procurement, project controls, and risk management.
“We appreciate that Heartwell chose TritenIAG to support their renewable diesel project. As leaders in sustainable projects, we are well prepared to help Heartwell build this grassroots facility and propel their ongoing investment in a sustainable energy future,” said Terence Easton, TritenIAG CEO.
The new production plant will be able to produce approximately 80 million gallons of renewable diesel, annually. Notably, the joint venture will be the only one of its kind to produce and market renewable diesel from soil to pump. The venture is a 50/50 split between the Love’s Family of Companies, Cargill, and their affiliates.
“We are excited about this investment and the impact our companies can make,” said Rob Stewart, Heartwell Renewables board member and President of Growth Ventures for Cargill’s North American protein business. “Renewable diesel is an important product that reduces carbon intensity and emissions while contributing to a circular economy. As a joint venture, we sought project experts with a proven track record; experts capable of unifying our project leadership while ensuring a safe, successful project.”
