Frontline forms San Joaquin Renewables as a project entity for a renewable natural gas plant.

San Joaquin Renewables is a special purpose entity created to own and operate a biomass-to-renewable-natural-gas plant in California.

San Joaquin Renewables production of RNG will add value to the local economy by creating cleaner air, high-paying jobs, and a higher value for orchard waste in the San Joaquin Valley.  San Joaquin Renewables was founded in 2018 as a project entity to build a plant that will convert orchard residues into renewable compressed natural gas (CNG) to fuel trucks, buses, and other CNG vehicles. CNG is a cleaner burning alternative to diesel and gasoline. In fact, vehicles running on renewable CNG can have lower emissions than electric vehicles, making it the obvious choice to reduce vehicle emissions.

In addition to providing a high-value, clean-burning transportation fuel, San Joaquin Renewables will provide a value-added outlet for the excess of biomass in the San Joaquin Valley. In the San Joaquin Valley, open burning of spent orchard trees is adding pollution to the already poor air quality. The first project by San Joaquin Renewables will use spent orchard wood, almond shells, and pistachio shells to fuel the production facility.

San Joaquin Renewables’ facility will be located near McFarland, California. The facility is expected to begin operations in 2021. San Joaquin Renewables values our neighbors in the San Joaquin Valley and are committed to being one of the best neighbors in the valley.
