"We continue to see improved margins in our global rendering through better cost management and our hydrolyzed collagen sales most affected by the economic impact of COVID have seen a solid turnaround."
"DGD had record sales volume of 80 million gallons for the third quarter as our vertically integrated supply chain that supports the lowest cost production system and the lowest carbon scoring feedstocks in North America continued to produce strong results.

"Our balance sheet remains strong as we paid down our outstanding term loan B by $145 million during the third quarter. Our leverage ratio as measured by our bank covenant was 1.93 at the end of the third quarter as we continue to work on achieving an investment grade rating in the future. Our capital expenditures stood at approximately $185 million for the first nine months of 2020, as we continue to effectively manage our capital expenditures," commented Stuewe.
