MRC Global Inc. (MRC) has announced that Chalmette Refining (CR) has selected MRC Global (US) Inc. as the primary pipe, valves, and fittings (PVF) products provider for CR’s Renewable Diesel Project in St. Bernard Parish, Louisiana. Chalmette Refining is a subsidiary of PBF Energy Inc. (PBF), one of the largest independent refiners in North America.

When completed, the production unit will have a nameplate capacity of 20,000 barrels per day of renewable fuel, with start-up expected in the first half of 2023.
