European Operation Center
Protecting the environment and improving air quality are global issues — and Renewable Energy Group is taking a global approach. We started in the U.S., and now we have a footprint in Europe and are making a difference on both continents.
Serving the World's Largest Biodiesel Market
In Europe, an effort known as the Circularity is underway to transform the economy into a more sustainable one. Biodiesel can play a big role in this. In fact, the European Union is the world’s largest producer and consumer of biodiesel.* Biodiesel in general has significantly lower emissions than petroleum diesel, but we go a step further at our European production facilities by utilizing used cooking oil as a primary feedstock. Used cooking oil offers even greater greenhouse gas reductions than other feedstocks.
