PBF wants to dramatically expand the Delaware City Refinery’s output of denatured ethanol from 84-thousand gallons a day to 420-thousand gallons.
The Wilmington News Journal reports that currently the facility imports ethanol from other states.
It is mixed with gasoline and is aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
The paper reports that the company wants to commence work on the expansion late this year with production beginning early next year.
The company will need to get permission from state officials and expect to employ 20 to 25 workers.
