Blue Tide Receives the First Shipment of UMO Feedstock

June 15, 2023

We reached an exciting milestone last week! Our first barge shipment of 20,000 barrels of UMO (used motor oil) feedstock arrived at our terminal. We also received our first rail cars of feedstock and are beginning to build our supply chain. Congrats to the Supply and Logistics teams that worked hard pulling this landmark event together, bringing us one step closer to starting production on our premium products. Below are a few of the photos that were taken during this inaugural event. 

The wave is starting to roll! Stay tuned as we share more milestones in the coming weeks and months leading up to our plant reaching our goals. Learn more about the sustainable products we will produce using UMO by visiting our products page.
