Sustainable products and services for a successful fleet.
At REG, we make it easy for you to achieve emissions goals while improving your fleet.
The energy landscape is changing. More and more municipalities across the country are making the move to biodiesel blended fuels in order to meet performance and sustainability goals. And REG is making it easy to take advantage of biodiesel benefits now and in the future.
With the largest annual capacity of any single producer in the country, REG can meet even your most demanding biodiesel volume requirements. And in addition to our substantial network of biorefineries and terminals, we offer several benefits to help you run a successful fleet with biodiesel.
Local support and expertise.
With more than 100 years of combined biodiesel experience, our management team has evolved our company from a single biodiesel production facility in 1996 into a nationally recognized, fully integrated, biomass based fuels and renewable chemicals company.
Our experts stay up to the minute on state and federal regulations, incentives, RIN trading and other important policy issues. We stay up to date on current tax codes and credits, and we offer expert technical support when and where you need it. All the while, we constantly develop new and innovative ways to change the world with biodiesel.
Biodiesel and renewable hydrocarbon diesel are renewable and sustainable, making your fleet better for the environment and your community. Plus, you’ll be ready to comply as more state and federal mandates are put in place.
We understand you demand proven performance and will not sacrifice quality for sustainability. With REG biodiesel, that’s not a concern. Not only does it meet or exceed stringent ASTM specifications, it also delivers impressive operational benefits, including improved lubricity and high combustion quality. Plus, biodiesel works in any diesel vehicle, providing fuel economy, horsepower and torque similar to ultra-low sulfur diesel (ULSD).
Adding biodiesel to your operation is easy. Because unlike other fuels on the market, it involves zero infrastructure changes. No special storage, no new fuel tanks, no new pumps or vehicles.
Competitive pricing and high-volume supply.
Contrary to popular belief, biodiesel is very cost competitive with traditional ULSD. Plus, our national production capacity offers additional supply assurance.

How municipalities and fleets improve their operations with biodiesel.
According to a 2016 Fleet Purchasing Outlook study conducted by the NTEA — The Association for the Work Truck Industry — biodiesel is now the most common alternative fuel option used by fleets.See how some of the nation’s biggest municipalities put biodiesel to work for them.
New York City
Since 2013, the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation has used B20 as its standard fuel in 850 diesel-powered vehicles. Today New York City uses more than 13 million gallons of biodiesel every year to power 9,000 vehicles in its fleet.
"We used B5, and in some cases B20, successfully across all of our operations with no real operational problems. Even during the polar vortex, when temperatures got colder than they have been in decades."
Chief Fleet Officer, Deputy Commissioner, City of New York
The Chicago Park District runs about 160 pieces of equipment with 6,000 gallons of biodiesel every year, including garbage trucks, mowing units and beach tractors. They use a B20 blend through the end of October before going to a B5 blend during winter.
"We want to be leaders, we want to implement sustainable practices, we want to be innovative and we want to roll it out and demonstrate that it’s what’s happening."
Former Area Manager, Chicago Park District
The city cut its greenhouse gas emissions by 60 percent3 in 2015 by replacing petroleum diesel with renewable hydrocarbon diesel in its fleet.
