Phillips 66 completes renewable conversion of Rodeo site


Phillips 66 announced that it has completed full conversion of the Rodeo Renewable Energy Complex, increasing the output of renewable fuels to 50,000 barrels per day.

“Phillips 66 has reached another important milestone, which is a testament to our employees’ dedication to achieving our company’s strategic priorities,” said Rich Harbison, executive vice president refining, Phillips 66. “The facility running at full capacity supports the growing demand for renewable fuels, lowers our carbon footprint and creates long-term value for our shareholders.”

The Rodeo facility’s 50,000bpd output is in line with the company’s goal of achieving full capacity by the second quarter of 2024.

Announced in 2020, Rodeo Renewed is designed to produce renewable diesel and sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), among other products. In addition to supplying California markets, the complex is providing renewable diesel in other areas along the West Coast.

The Rodeo complex includes new pre-treatment units that process lower carbon intensity feedstocks, such as used cooking oil, fats, greases and vegetable oil.

It began producing approximately 30,000bps of renewable fuel at the end of the first quarter of 2024.
