Proposed. The Department received a Request for Site Certificate Exemption on November 9, 2020. Next Renewable Fuels Oregon, LLC seeks an exemption under ORS 469.320(2)(f) which authorizes site certificate exemptions for facilities which demonstrate the following: a biofuel production facility that has local land use approval and that requires no transmission lines or pipelines that would require a site certificate; that produces a fuel, at least 90 percent of which is used in an industrial or refueling facility located within one mile of the facility or is transported from the facility by rail or barge; and that emits less than 118 pounds of carbon dioxide per million Btu from fossil fuel used for conversion energy. Following a determination of completeness on the Request for Site Certificate Exemption, the Department will issue a Notice of Filing and a Proposed Order, to be considered at a future Council meeting. The Notice of Filing and Proposed Order will be available for review on the project webpage via hyperlinks provided below.
