Starwood Energy Group Global, a private investment firm that specializes in energy infrastructure investments, and Slate Refining, an energy production and wholesale distribution and logistics company have entered into an exclusive agreement to reconfigure Slate’s refinery located in Douglas, Wyoming into a state-of-the-art renewable fuels production facility.

Upon completion of the project, the facility is expected to produce over 100 million gallons annually of renewable fuels, such as renewable diesel, sustainable aviation fuel and arctic diesel. Starwood Energy’s extensive experience developing, owning, operating, and financing renewables and energy transition projects, coupled with Slate’s operational and refining expertise, brings a complementary and world-class team to the project.

“We are excited to partner with Slate on this project and to bring our considerable expertise developing, building and operating world-class energy infrastructure projects to this opportunity,” said Himanshu Saxena, CEO of Starwood Energy. “The Douglas facility is ideally positioned to provide renewable fuels to serve both the US and Canadian markets to help off-takers meet their renewable fuel goals. The energy sector is undergoing rapid transition with emphasis on ESG and decarbonization and Starwood Energy is proud to be at the forefront of these changes.”

Both Starwood Energy and Slate are committed to the production of high-grade, low-carbon fuel alternatives. The development of the Project is designed to provide viable renewable fuel options for a multitude of fuel end-users, helping these end-users achieve carbon neutrality.
