Governor Gary Herbert joined Andeavor Chairman, President and CEO Gregory Goff and multiple stakeholder groups at Andeavor's Salt Lake City Refinery to break ground on the company's hydrotreater expansion project, marking continued progress in improving Utah's air quality through the production of cleaner 'Tier 3' fuels.
Tier 3 fuels reduce the sulfur content of fuels, enabling a car’s catalytic converter to run better and reduces volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions on all vehicles. On vehicles with newer emissions reduction equipment, the emissions reduction in is even greater, up to 81 percent.
“This is a big win for our air quality,” said Gov. Herbert. “We’re proud to see Utah’s largest refinery partner with my Office of Energy Development to invest in game-changing cleaner fuels that represents a lasting investment and commitment to Utah’s air quality.”
