NRG Resources Inc, an independent oil and oil products company, has completed a strategic acquisition of about 3.8 acres in Victorville CA, with the objective of building a biodiesel and synthetic fuel blending facility.
The vacant land, which is the planned building site for a blending facility for the proprietary, patent-pending biodiesel and synthetic fuels marketed by NRG, is within the largest master planned commercial development in the Inland Empire, the Southern California Logistics Airport (SCLA).
The property is 45 minutes from Los Angeles and less than 100 miles from the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. The special zone provides on-site United States Customs Port of Entry, secured cargo facilities, container freight stations, and bonded warehouses.
NRG views this acquisition as the first step in expanding its current production capacity and augmenting its product line to accommodate biodiesel manufacturing. Its San Diego production of lubricants is estimated to be 11,000 gallons per day. The planned Victorville plant is expected to produce 250,000 gallons per day.
