Tesoro Launches Plan to Support Development of Renewable Biocrude for its Refineries

It was announced today that Fulcrum and Tesoro Corporation have entered into a strategic relationship that will enable Tesoro to purchase low-carbon renewable crude fuel from Fulcrum’s Sierra BioFuels Plant.  All of Fulcrum’s waste to fuels plants produce three valuable products; jet fuel, diesel fuel and low-carbon renewable syncrude.  The Sierra plant will produce syncrude when it enters operations in 2019, but will have the capacity in the future to produce jet fuel and diesel.  Fulcrum’s renewable syncrude fuel is very clean, contains zero sulfur and has only 20% of the carbon footprint as petroleum crude oil.  Fulcrum’s fuel will help Tesoro meet the federal and California low-carbon fuel requirements at competitive prices.
