The new refinery, capable of making 105 million gallons of the biofuel a year, will be located on the site of the old Channel Refining Corporation waste oil/chemical refinery near Galena Park at the Houston Ship Channel. GreenHunter is converting this facility and will also build a methanol distillation plant on the site. GreenHunter's permit allows it to use variable feedstocks (soy bean oil, palm oil, jatropha oil and/or animal/poultry fats) from domestic or international sources. Since the "new" plant will be converted from the old one, GreenHunter expects to be producing fuel by March 2008.
