DELAWARE CITY, Del. (AP) - The owners of a Delaware City refinery are seeking a permit to significantly increase the amount of biofuel being stored at and shipped from the facility.

The News Journal of Wilmington (https://delonline.us/2ceoNxa ) reports that PBF Energy is hoping to have the refinery handle about 420,000 gallons of denatured ethanol each day - a five-fold increase over the 84,000 gallons it currently handles daily.

The company filed an application Aug. 15 with the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control for a Coastal Zone Act permit.

PBF Energy says it hopes to begin work on the $7 million project in late 2016 and begin full production by the first quarter of 2017. After construction is completed, no additional hiring is expected as a result of the expanded operations.
