Port Westward

Our original development project is proposed for Port Westward near Clatskanie, Oregon and adjacent to the Columbia River maritime channel. If all permitting approvals are granted, this site will be the home to a renewable diesel and sustainable aviation fuel hub with production capacity of up to 50,000 barrels of clean fuel per day. NXTClean anticipates that construction of this facility will begin in 2025.
