Lakeview Site

Lakeview, Oregon provides the ideal combination of proximity to feedstock, transportation and community support for our first-of-its-kind Red Rock Biofuels project. This southeastern area of Oregon offers an abundant source of waste woody biomass, and excellent transportation access to the major low carbon fuel markets in the United States and Canada. Situated in the radius of the Lakeview site is 8.5 million acres of usable forests – Red Rock only needs access to 25,000 acres a year to meet its capabilities of converting 166,000 tons of waste woody biomass into 15 million gallons per year of biofuel.

“As numerous industries continue to seek new, effective ways to decarbonize their operations, and demand for reliable, eco-friendly and low-carbon fuels accelerates, Red Rock’s work at Lakeview becomes even more critical,”
